I am having problems with the "select" command in Preview. (Using a Macbook Air, running OSX v. 10.7.5, Preview Version 5.5.3 (719.31)) This is the option accessed from the menu bar in the upper left when reading a pdf document using Preview. The button shows a square in dotted lines, and it says "Select" underneath. When you click on the button your cursor turns into a plus-sign, and you can mark a rectangular area in the file you are reading. Once it is marked, you can hit cmd-C to copy it. Then you can go to a Word file and hit cmd-V to paste it in. The problem is that it does not copy the area you marked - it copies an area perhaps 1/6 of a page lower. Consistently. It ALWAYS does that. I know that instead of using the Preview Select option, I could use the "Grab" utility, accessed using cmd-shift-4. However, sometimes I need to cut a large table, or one that goes across more than one page. In order to copy the whole thing I zoom out in Preview, and then cut and paste. With the Grab utility, that reduces the resolution so much that the resulting copied table is not readable in Word. Whereas with the Preview Select option, the resolution is not affected by the zoom, because it actually knows what you are copying and keeps the detail. So using the Grab utility isn't a good alternative unless what I want to copy is quite small. Do other people have this problem? I never had it when I used Acrobat on any of my previous computers (PCs), so I assume it's particular to Preview. Does anyone know how to fix this? Or is it a known Preview bug?
