Gretchen, thanks for the heads up. Like Connie, I missed the announcement of the D3 guide. I'm sure it will be on par with his other stuff. Going to order it now.

Copying text from the e-Book to the clipboard

My copy arrived yesterday. I found Adobe Reader 7 (running under Win XP) crashing when I would close the PDF file, so I installed Reader 9. (Thanks, Adobe, for un-installing v.7 without asking me even though I used different installation directories entirely).

First I thought there's some bug in v.9 that prevents copying text to the clipboard. I uninstalled v.9 and found a Reader 8 installer on the web, then installed it. I'm not sorry I did -- it is noticeably faster to launch and display than v.9.

But copying text to the clipboard still isn't working.

To anyone using Reader 8 or 9 under Win XP: are you able to highlight text in the D3 .pdf file, and copy it to the clipboard? I wrote to Hogan asking if he'd flipped a bit in making the PDF file, such that copying is disabled. I would be surprised if he has time to reply, though -- he must get huge amounts of e-mail...

I would be surprised if he *hadn't* flipped the bit to prevent copying.

Perhaps he did. Maybe he'll reply about it. If he did flip that bit, I would have preferred to have a brief note about it in the docs (I searched for the word "clipboard" and didn't find it). I could understand this -- preventing easy copying of entire sections and transferring them to someone who hadn't bought the e-book. Then again, anyone can easily take a screen-shot of the entire screen, then pass it along as a JPEG, so preventing copying to the clipboard would not fully prevent piracy. At any rate, I had hoped to copy to the clipboard a URL (his "errata" page) that appears to be a non-working link, then paste it into mail I planned to send him. It would have been convenient and there'd be no chance of my mis-typing the URL -- and surely that could be considered "fair use" (in copyright-law terms). Oh, well. Not some major disaster though. Just an inconvenience...

Thanks for the post Gretchen! I too have been waiting and missed the announcement. Ordered late last night. Can't wait!

He did, with a brief note to say that he has never permitted copying to the clipboard from his e-books. Fair enough. (A short note about this wouldn't have been an entirely bad idea, but anyway, at least it's confirmed.)
