Selecting tool in google books

  1. Sep 15, 2014 #1
    Hi, When I am in the Google Books I cannot find selecting tool as there is pdf files but there is a hand. But with that hand I cannot copy and paste a phrase. Under what setting I can find selecting tool or there is no selecting tool.

    Have nice day

    It looks like the book pages are images that have copying turned off in the page's javascript. About the only thing you can do is to capture screenshots and save those as images.
