How to copy and paste 10% of the book you're reading elsewhere.

Updated over a week ago

You can copy and paste up to 10% of any book you’re reading, helping you save time and transfer the information you need, where you need it! 🎉

You can also copy the notes you’ve added to books directly from your notes panel in the eReader.

Here's how to copy and paste text from a book in 3 easy steps:

1. Simply highlight the text that you’d like to copy. A panel will appear, look for the option to Copy & Paste (it’s the icon that looks like two pages on top of each other) and click on it.

2. With a click the text you’ve highlighted will automatically be copied to your clipboard. You’ll notice a small pop-up to confirm this.

3. Now you can paste the copy anywhere your heart desires.

Please note - copy and paste isn't currently available on the Perlego app (but we're working on it 😉)

How do I copy my notes?

You can copy a note you've made by clicking on the note in the eReader, highlighting the text you'd like to copy and selecting 'copy note'. Just like in the image below👇

Why can I only copy 10% of a book?

To prevent plagiarism and abide by copyright laws, you can only copy and paste up to 10% of each book you’re reading. Once you’ve reached your limit, we’ll let you know.

Remember: you won’t be able to copy and paste any more text from the book once you’ve reached your limit and you can't remove any previous copies, so be mindful about which pieces of text are really important to you.

At the moment, the copy and paste feature is not available on Chrome for iOS devices, but we're working on it!
