Hi, i have started using microsoft office 2007 onenote mainly to keep pages organized in when i have been researching something on the net, but if i want to copy and paste a line of text from a onenote doc to something else using the right mouse button to highlight ect. or keyboard shortcuts CTRL+C, CTRL+V or right click context menu options, onenote will not allow this.
An example say if i wanted to copy a address [a line of text]from a doc in onenote to google maps to find the location, i am unable to do this because the whole doc would be highlighted to copy not the specific line of text i wanted and the left mouse button just brings up a scalable greyed out box which wont select anything.
Is there a way of doing this in one note? Thanks.

I take it that there is no way to highlight and copy selected text from a document in onenote to another document outside of onenote ie a web page or for example into notepad?

Take a look here at a discussion regarding your question: http://www.eggheadcafe.com/software/aspnet...-copy-text.aspx

Not sure there is an answer, but apparently it is a known issue.

Thanks for the reply Animal, seems like the only way to make the text selectable is to copy and paste the entire doc and then select the text from the newly pasted doc, a bit cack handed but a solution none the less. Seems crazy Microsoft would not have made the text selectable to begin with seen as how onenote is a kind of digital scrap book.
