Using commands on the InfoTools menu users can copy selections and print pages from books in CEL.
To copy portions of the text, select the portion and use the InfoTools “Copy” command. This will store the text in memory, which can then be pasted to another application using CtlV or “Paste” in InfoTools. The paste operation adds a bibliographic citation of the source material with a link to the page in the document where the information was obtained.
Images are not included in the copy command.
To print pages from CEL, use the InfoTools “Print” command. This will display a dialogue box allowing the user to set the print range within the limits established for the title. See below for more detail.
When the “Print” button is clicked, a Print dialog box allows for selection of system printers:
If Adobe PDF is installed on the system, the print can be directed to a PDF file.
Each printed page includes a bibliographic citation.
The “throttle” is the limit set on printing/copying. This is set to enforce copyright restrictions. The standard throttle in CEL is 10%. This means that a user would be allowed to print 20 pages of a 200-page book. A chapter may normally be printed under the Fair Dealing terms of the Canada Copyright Act.
There is also a maximum set on each print session, which will range from 20 to 40 pages.
In some cases, if the throttle permits a larger number of pages than the maximum, if may be necessary to trigger the print command more than once in order to reach the throttle limit.
