How to Copy the Selected Text Clipboard in Adobe Reader 9

Adobe's Portable Document Format (PDF) is an industry standard for sending documents. The cross-platform compatibility of Adobe's software, along with the security of a static document that cannot be modified by the end user, is what makes the format suitable as an electronic document. Unfortunately, the inability to edit the file can sometimes be a hassle. Using Adobe Reader 9, you can copy text from a PDF document onto your clipboard, then paste into a word processor or another piece of software for editing.
