In my copy of Adobe Reader 9, the select text function does not work properly. After selecting the TOOLS->SELECT and ZOOM->SELECT TOOL, then moving the cursor into an area of text, the cursor appears as a + sign and allows selection of an area of the display window. After releasing the right mouse button, the selected area disappears and a display wide single line area results. I can copy an image of this one line area. What does not happen that I think should be is that the cursor should be a " | " vertical line allowing selection of text. This never happens. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe Reader 9 to no avail to correct this problem.
