    Lora, thanks for the idea of adding the hand and select tools. Do you know how to save the toolbar once it is set up? Or do you have to re edit the toolbar each time you open Acrobat X? Thanks Again! 😉

    Ah, found it!

    The toolbars are controlled under View, Show/Hide, Toolbar Items.

    You can make the snapshot icon visible using Toolbar Items, Edit.

    I added the Select Tool and Hand Tool and either of those turns the Snapshot off.

    Robin – try using the menu. Click Edit, then Take a Snapshot.

    cool? – I have PDFs where the image is not recognized as a separate element, so can neither be right-clicked nor highlighted and copied normally.

    My issue is . . . I can’t seem to turn OFF the snapshot tool!
