How do I copy illustrations or other content from PreachingToday.com into my sermon manuscript?

Highlight the desired text, copy it (in Windows, Ctrl + C), and paste it (in Windows, Ctrl + V) into your Word document or other file.

When copying an illustration, we recommend you copy text from only the body of the illustration, since the box at the top of each illustration (containing the Topics, Filters, References, and Tone) will come into your Word document as a table. Some subscribers find it easier to use the Printer-friendly View, which is in the upper-right corner of each illustration, sermon, or article. Click on either the icon or link that looks like this:

When copying from a sermon, if you have trouble copying and pasting from the PDF file, the problem may be that you have an old version of Adobe Acrobat on your computer. You can download the newest version at no charge here.

With the sermon PDF file open, be sure that the "select tool" is on (menu | tools | select & zoom | select tool), then highlight the desired text, copy it (in Windows, Ctrl + C), and paste it (in Windows, Ctrl + V) into your Word document or other file. The text will be editable.

If this does not work, you can use the Snapshot function in Adobe Reader. (Snapshot copies a picture of the text, but the text will not be editable.) If a Snapshot will serve your purpose, choose the Snapshot Tool: (menu | tools | select & zoom | snapshot tool), and then highlight the desired text. Paste the Snapshot into the Word file where desired.
