Create a PDF from Clipboard Content in Acrobat Pro DC: Overview

            You can create a PDF from Clipboard content in Acrobat Pro DC. To create a PDF from Clipboard content in Acrobat Pro DC, you must first copy information to the Clipboard.

In most software applications, you select text by clicking and dragging to highlight your selection.
