Copy text in a PDF to Clipboard

Many times, you may only need to copy or reference a couple of lines of a PDF document, so it makes sense that you should be able to extract this small section for use in other applications or files.

Wide Angle PDF Converter allows you to copy text from PDF easily.

Highlight the text or image which you'd like to copy to your clipboard, then hit Copy to Clipboard

Once the selection has been copied, it's usable in any application which allows you to copy/paste. Simply right-click and paste the selection from your clipboard into any other application or document.
