Cannot copy text from iBooks?

Hi guys,.

So, I'm currently learning Swift using the Swift Programming Language 2.2 of iBooks. However, it won't let me copy the text I want to run the code from the book to test inside. I could write this code myself but there are a few sections that I'd rather not.

Anyone know why this is happening? In the past I was able to copy the text of the book, but now it is not letting me (it is grayed out).

  • How does one copy text from a text document and spent in photoshop?

    How does one copy text from a text document and spent in photoshop?

    Say I have a basic document open with some a few paragrphs text

    in it. I don't know how to copy it, but how I paste in Photoshop?

    I think if there is more than one line of text, then it would be best to drag a text box, place the cursor inside the text box and paste it (Ctrl or Cmd-v)

    Or if yo want only the text (paragraph) to adapt to irregular shape, then draw this shape with the tool pen > select the text tool and click inside the shape you produced with the pen tool, and paste.

  • Cannot copy images from any type of disc. ??

    Cannot copy pictures on any type of disc. the computer behaves as if she is unable to format the drive? I thought that this was done automatically.


    ·        What is the exact error that you are experiencing when you try to burn the disk?

    ·        Outside photos, you are able to burn other files on the disk?

    ·        You use any burning software to burn the photos to disk?

    Note: Using third-party software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the use of third-party software can be solved. Software using third party is at your own risk.

    I suggest to format the drive and check if you are able to burn discs or not. Follow the steps mentioned below.

    a. be aware that Windows XP, in its native form, does not directly support CD formatting. Formatting a CD requires support for the ISO images that is missing from Windows XP.

    b. download or buy CD and formatting of third-party burning software. Third-party CD utilities include features like CD burning, imaging of CD and the CD put fit.

    c. install the third-party software, following specific instructions in accordance with the software documentation. Many programs will require you to restart Windows to complete the installation. Close all other applications and do it.

    d. place the disk you want to format in the drawer. Make sure that it is in the drawer of CD - R or CD - R/W and not another tray (tray of DVD) or a simple CD player.

    e. start the third-party application and follow the instructions on the screen as they appear. Choose the "Format CD" option on the file menu, or choose 'Create a new CD.' This application controls tend to vary an application to, so be sure to check the documentation.

    f. don't forget to leave the CD in the taskbar until the process is completely finished. If you remove the CD before the completion of the formatting, you will ruin the disc.

    g. give a volume name to your new CD.

    I also suggest you to check the article mentioned below.

    Should which CD or DVD format I use?

    Note: This article also contains information about Windows XP.

    I suggest you run the fix it is present in the article below.

    How do I activate the selection tool, so I can do this?

    If there is text to be copied (in other words, if the pdf file is not a scanned image of the text), by default, you should see a pointer that will change when you hover over the text to an ibeam.

    If you see a hand tool, click on the double arrow towards the top right of the display screen to get a drop-down list and select "disable the hand tool.

    Tagz - UPDATE!  It works, it was not just to put pictures where I expected them.  Is there a way to sort the most recent photos first?  I would have thought about it earlier that... :-)

  • The VM cannot copy files from a network share on the host

    I get the error "unable to copy xyz123: cannot read from the source file or disk.» When you try to copy a file to a shared folder.

    • The shared folder is located on the machine called VM-SERVER, which runs in Workstation 6.0.4. The folder is shared with everyone having full control. Security settings say that DOMAIN\Domain users also have complete control.

    • Any user who connects to any guest VM on VM-SERVER, which is the host of all the VMS in the Organization, can not access the file for copying, although registration to the directory is there (although slow to come). If the same user connects to any other computer on the network, any computer of VM-no-prompt, then he can access the files on the share on VM-SERVER with no problems.

    • VM' are the guest all configured with Bridged networking like they serve other users on the network. I disable the VMWare adapters. I insert the DisableDos key with a value of 1 as indicated by the FAQ, I restart the VM host operating system and the virtual computer guests.

    • VM-SERVER running Windows Server 2003 R2 x 64. It has 2 1 TB SATA drives, and the action in question is physically located on the D: drive.

    • The VM guest OS are XP Sp3, Vista Sp1, Windows Server 2003 R2 x 32 Business.

    • None of these comments VM are able to access the contents of the files on the share on VM-SERVER.

    • All computer virtual guests are able to access shares located on another server, the primary domain controller of the network that is running Windows Server 2003 R2 x 32.

    Accordingly, I'm worried because the concept of the virtual computer for critical business was my decision and up to the exception of this scenario (and a recently resolved USB printing problem) it went well. Unfortunately even a mess can stop production.

    Note that I have read the FAQ and tried the suggestions that seemed to apply.  I also looked in the forums and haven't seen a specific question/answer.  If there is an answer out there and you read this point please make me, orperhaps you have another suggestion?  I am open to all theories and possible solutions.

  • How can copy text from a PDF file in the right order?

    I get texts translation of customers in PDF files. I need to copy some of the text of these files in Word, but the selection of Adobe jumps tool documents around, seemingly at random, sort of paragraphs and lines from different locations on a page are automatically selected together. The tables are particularly bad. If I try to copy an entire file, receives yet more random order. For example, all the titles of the document can be gathered in one place. I tried various PDF conversion software. They put all the PDF content in the areas of text, which is not suitable for my purposes. I want to just copy the PDF files in the exact order in which they appear on the page in text form that I can handle in Word. I'm now up to version 9.3.0 and there has been no improvement. Is there a solution to this problem?

    Hey, Marcoola.

    I agree that by copying and sticky from PDF to Word maunally are really difficult and tedious work. I have encounterd this problem before. Fortunately the problem can be solved perfectly now. I recommend AnyBizSoft PDF to Word Converter, which is totally free for months before. This conversion mode supports three app - batch, partial, right-click conversion and it even supports encrypted PDF conversion, previously you must have legal rights. And the conversion quality is superb, all the original text, page, images and hyperlinks will be preserved in an editable word document. It is more useful than those software online for free. It will be useful.

  • How to select and copy text from the address book of lightning, against duty open entry?

    I know, it is not possible to highlight and copy the text visible in the pane above it, with all the entries in address book or Contact. Am I missing a way to do this?

    It would, of course, the use of the address book in lightning much easier and faster to use if we could do. Please note that I did not edit. Instead, it is necessary to go through the same steps as if editing. That is, open properties and select the appropriate tab, highlight & copy said information, instead just to be able to quickly copy the text you want.

    It's just two more clicks and the conclusion of the text, which can be cumbersome in some Windows Small field, especially for the notes, but when you do it often, he of course becomes a pain. Notes, in particular, becomes a mini database to enter address, be it your personal record for product information for something (which could be extended if many of the parts of something like a specific computer have been identified), bought to share other contact information.

    A third is used especially when we need to get impossible to remember, like your BTC account security information. Keeping in the address book on a home computer, adds a little more security, but you can access it easily.

    Add more functions to the AddressBook allows several functions of copy.

  • Cannot copy Photos from external storage library

    I want to copy my library of Photos of my iMac to an external storage device. I use an SD card to copy the files on as is the storage device external only I with sufficient capacity to store my library (21,86 GB). When I run the copy, all right, but eventually it stops about 21.5 GB (do not remember the exact number). It comes up with the error message "the Finder cannot complete the operation because some data in"Photo library"cannot be read or written. (Error code - 36) ». The library contains a very important image and video files and while I don't have a backup of it on my Time Capsule airport, I added a lot of files since then. One thing I found on other messages of the forum is to repair my library by pressing the command and option that I opened the Photos but I'm afraid that something can go wrong or could not even solve the problem, however if someone thinks he can do the trick I will try it. BTW - the SD card works fine as I tested it on my MacBook Air and it works for other files on my iMac. I also tried using a different SD card but had the same problems. I am running OSX 10.11 version (The El Capitan Public Beta Candidate GM). The reason why I have not yet updated to my computer because I'm worried cause more problems with my library of Photos and, as I said, my only relief is most likely is obsolete. I use an iMac late 2013 and I have had no other problems with my computer, or I do now with the current version, I'm running. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance and wish you a wonderful Christmas.

    What format is the SD card?  The photo library can be on a volume formatted Mac OS extended (logged)

    and as for backups without a good current backup that you will lose data early as things do lack, including the hardware, software and human - you need a constant backujp as TimeMachine anytime
