How can I disable copy-to-clipboard function?

Feb 27, 2012 1:10 AM

Acrobat reader provides copy-to-clipboard function.


But this function really annoying me when I attempt to select some texts


Everytime I drag a rectangle around the area, and then release the mouse button, this program automatically


activate copy-to-clipboard function. Once this program automatically copy selected area, it takes some seconds to cancle this function.


Since some pdf file cannot identify texts, I often face this problem when I attempt to drag text areas on pdf files which results unintentional


activating function of copying selected images to clipboard.




Can anybody give some advise to disable this automatic copy-to-clipboard function?

    Are you having this issue with all PDF's?


    I think the issues is arising because your SNAPSHOT tool is enabled. To check go to EDIT and see wherther there is check before "Take a snapshot" option.

    Just try after selecting HAND tool from tool bar in Adobe Reader.

    I have the same problem. The SNAPSHOT is not checked, while this snipping function turns on automatically when you drag a rectangular. It is kind of annonying when I want to select the text. I have to align the cursor carefully with the text otherwise the snipping function will be invoked. I also want to know how to disable this function.
