I just tried again and the thing works!

> Hi Wright, Actually, that works for me. I just selected the T (text) button, held down the left mouse button, and hilighted the text I wanted to copy, then I just clicked on the copy button (it looks like two pages), third button from the left on Adobe 5.
That point was crucial! I use the Windoze menus so habitually that I
completely overlooked that little "icon for illiterates" (read MAC command)
down inside the Adobe page.

Control-C also works for me now. I have no idea why I thought it was
disabled, before. [I'm also ashamed that I forgot about Control-A.]
Thanks all, for raising my awareness on this subject. [No, Bill and Barry,
no chance I'm ready to roll over and say I "like" pdf, but keep putting
stuff up the way that's easiest for you. The experts here will be able to
drag me along when I get mired down.]
Ob. killy content: Went out to Lake Lagunita, on the Stanford campus to look
for Daphnia a week or so ago. They had not started filling it yet, so it was
a prairie. I hope it will be full by WCW time (usually is) so we can collect
lots for the show.

Instead of giving money to found colleges to promote
learning, why don't they pass a constitutional amendment
prohibiting anybody from learning anything? If it works as
good as the Prohibition one did, why, in five years we would
have the smartest race of people on earth. -- Will Rogers
