    Is there a way to select text in Preview when viewing a PDF? I ask because Reader 6.0 is so slow, and preview loads so much faster. But I need to be able to copy text from my PDF's to the clipboard from time to time.

    Best feature of Jaguar's Preview: all those Export formats.

    Worst feature of Jaguar's Preview: no text selection.

    I'm looking forward to Panther.
