    iPad Highlighting News Articles

    I am trying, to no avail, to highlight an article within a newspaper article and then email to myself or to other associates. (For example, an article in the Wall Street Journal) I don't have the ability to highlight (or make any notations) or even send an article to i Annotate to do the highlighting. any and all assistance would be appreciated!

    Most news sites (especially a popular one!) should allow you to email the entire article to friends.

    However, if you want to highlight, try double tapping on a single word to bring up a blue rectangle, and then expand the rectangle by dragging the blue dots on the outline of the blue rectangle.

    That will copy text nicely, but won't copy pictures (which can also be selected if you start with a bit of text and drag the handles). The only way I know to do that is with Evernote.

    iCab will let you create a note from the selected parts of a website using Evernote. You can also do it in Safari with this ingenious workaround: Evernote Web Clipper Installation

    Both solutions are very slow, but better than nothing in a pinch.

    The other option is to email the link. Just tap on the share link to the left of the URL field and choose Mail Link to this Page.

    It looks like NYT has somehow disabled the ability to highlight and copy text from the website. Perhaps the WSJ has done the same. This is probably to prevent people from selecting text and emailing to friends to avoid getting dinged by the paywall.
