Default adobe reader

JoAnn, that is what I had in mind; to use the snipping tool (windows 7) and
then use MS Word 2007 but I do not know how to get it to read a screen shot
using OCR.
The long way round would be to print the bits I want from Adobe Reader, then
scan back in and use OCR to get into word format.
That is cumbersome.
The camera is Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS10 and on first use it seems to be a
beauty. I still have my older cameras, A Zeiss Contarex single lens reflex
(too heavy now), a Nikon underwater (no longer use) and an Olympus compact
(heavy for my pocket) so I can make comparisons.
Thanks again.

What about using screenshots, use OCR, and then convert to Word?

The Panasonic instruction manual is security protected and will not
permit me to copy however as you have suggested I can print the pages I
My idea of using "Word" was to condense the parts that I wanted and have
a small compact note to go in the camera pouch.
Thanks again.

To add to what the others have said, although you can certainly print
the entire manual as a booklet or copy selected text to a Word document,
have you considered just printing specific pages of the PDF through
Adobe Reader?

I have just bought a new camera and the instructions are printed (on
screen) in Adobe Reader; there are 104 pages.
I wish to copy the pages I need in to a word document and then modify
and print what I want.
Is there any way I can use Word 2007 to do this?
I remember reading that Word has an OCR capability but do not know if
this would work from the Adobe Reader screen.
Thank you.
