Copy From Help-file Secret

There is an undocumented way to get text or graphics out of a help screen into any application capable of accepting Drag and Drop objects:
  1. Right click in an open help window. The cursor should change to an I-bar shape --sometimes you have to right click a couple of times before it works.
  2. Use the left mouse button to mark any text (or graphics) you'd like to copy.
  3. Use the right mouse button to drag the selected portion of text into NewWrite (or another application)--this process normally retains all graphics and formatting in the original text.
