Hello,

I purchased the R in Action PDF file few days ago and I find it very useful,
However I am unable to copy and paste some of the code from the PDF file in order to run it.
Would you please advise how can I solve this probelm.

Thank you,
Victoria

Re: Copy code from the PDF ebook
It's probably because the pdf is restricted by owner password which prevents you from copying, editing and printing pdf files. In this case, you need to remove pdf password with a pdf password remover. After that, you can copy content from the pdf file.

Re: Copy code from the PDF ebook
Actually, I don't think that the PDF is locked. I looked at the security settings and it should allow copying, although it doesn't seem to work. I expect that the code will be available in a text file that you can download when the book is published.

Sincerely,

Rob
