Is there a simple (quick) way to copy several pages of a long document besides highlighting all the necessary pages? Can I easily select the pages to be copied? Thank you.

The short answer here is no. You cannot get around highlighting the sections of text in one form or another. Think for a second, how will Word, or any application ‘know’ what to copy to the clipboard, if you don’t?

*** End Update ***

Place the cursor at the beginning of the text you want to copy. The scroll down using the scroll bar to display the end of the text block (note: you are NOT click dragging). Then <shift>-<click> and all the text between the original cursor location and the <shift>-<click> location will be highlighted. Copy and pate as usual.
