Copying from iBook. Is it possible?
This is a discussion on TIPS AND TRICKS - for those of us who don't know! within the New Member Introductions - Site Assistance forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; Copying from iBook. Is it possible?...
It depends what you mean. You can copy text by pressing and holding a word then extend the selection and choose copy from the pop-up menu. If you mean copy a book or PDF file then synchronise to your PC or Mac, find the item to opt and use the impute op sys to copy.Originally Posted by marcus_d

I want to copy from a book. Pressing the word doesn't give me a copy command. I don't understand the other suggestion
So, only unprotected ePub books can be copied from. That would exclude pretty much all the paid for books, and probably some of free ones.
Again, sorry for the mistake.
Quite alright! Although it leads to an abandoning of all hope
Depending on what you want the text for, you could take screen shots. If it's for study notes, a picture should be almost as useful as the text alone. Using the free app Skitch you can even crop and annotate the note; then import it into your favorite card app.
If you are trying to get the quote into a thesis or other paper, I'm afraid you'll have to do it old fashioned way, and type.
Here is a handy tip for iPad, iPhone and iPod users.
If you ever get problems with your home button sticking with excessive use! go to settings/general/accessibility/ then turn on "Assistive Touch" ( it will place a home button on screen ) try it out
That reduces the pressure on home button...
I use the gestures as often as I can to operate. You can even stop the "jiggly mode" by swiping the screen up and back down.Originally Posted by tarzan11_11
