I donwloaded a epub formatted book. I viewed it in Adobe Digital Editions version 2.0.67532.
Highlighted some text and pressed ctrl-c to copy. ADE application crashed.
I restarted it. Highlighted text. Right click and Select copy. ADE crashed.
This bug is easily reproducible.
Please let me know if there is a workaround for this issue.
This is clearly a bug; it shouldn't crash.
Does ctrl-C for copying do exactly the same?
Check the properties of the book. It may be that copying is not allowed.
(On ADE 1.7.2 properties can be accessed using ctrl-i; probablythe same ADE2.0 as well).
In that case, there is no easy (or legal) workaround.
You could use a screen scraper such as http://sourceforge.net/projects/capture2text/?source=dlp
While not strictly legal most people would be accept that as reasonable for small a small amount of text.
ADE1.7.2 gives a clear 'Permissions set by the publisher of this item restrict copying' message
when attempting to copy from a copy protected book.
When you look at the info you should see something like
Permissions set by the publisher
I had the same issue in Windows 7. In my case, running Adobe Digital Editions as admin resolved the issue.
