You may copy an entire page as a single image, see Printing pages as images, or individual images found on a page, see below. You may copy all of the text on a page, or just a part of the text. The text is placed in the clipboard ready for pasting elsewhere; see also Extracted text options.
An image on a page can be simply saved as a TIFF or PNG file:
|Right click on the graphic and select Save graphic from the pop-up menu.
|A standard file setup dialog opens, headed 'Graphic' along with the 'width x height' of the image in pixels. Enter a File name for the new image.
|Choose TIFF or PNG as the image format.
First you must select the piece of text to be copied: selected text is shown in a rectangular box with transparent sizing handles, for example
|Use the mouse to sweep over the piece of text for copying. Then:
|Choose Copy from the pop-up menu or
|Choose Copy from the 'Edit' menu.
Similarly, you may copy the whole page by choosing Select all from the 'Edit' menu instead of sweeping-out an area, but there are more efficient ways: see To copy all of the text on a page below.
When there is no text selected, all the text on the page may be copied to the clipboard, even if only part of the page is on view in the EscapeE window.
|Choose Copy Page from the 'Edit' menu or
|right click on the page and choose Copy Page from the pop-up menu.
Tip: to create a new document from parts selected from existing documents, try using the IDF Copy & Add selection to IDF feature: see Creating an IDF document.
