Actually, you can copy/paste individual Logs using Adobe's 'Snapshot' tool. Click on 'Tools' on top of the pdf viewer, then scroll down to 'Select & Zoom' (you'll get a drop down menu), then click on 'Snapshot Tool'. This brings up a cursor that looks like a crosshair. Lay the crosshair on the corner of the log you want, left click your mouse and drag the crosshair to the opposite corner of the log, release and the log is copied (you'll get a dialog box so stating and the colors will reverse on the area chosen to copy). Move to a word or excell sheet, right click, hit paste, and there's your log. Once on the sheet, you can move it around and resize it, just like you would a picture jpg or gif. Using this neat little tool, you can use the ship logs as a database with which to assemble you own OOBs for whatever battle you want. Hope this helps!
However, with the security settings on them I don't seem to be able to selct and copy individual ship SDSs.

Richard,The security settings are there for protection of copyright, but as stated by Coastal, using the "snapshot" tool in Adobe Reader, you can turn the Deluxe Ship Logs into the Deluxe Ship Database. Along with the powerful search function of the Reader, that is how I intend to use them. This makes them an even better tool than the cut and paste method, and they now can be put into plastic sheets rather than card holders.Your choice as to how you want to use them.Cheers,CinC
Hi there,Just downloaded the pdfs and very nice they are too.However, with the security settings on them I don't seem to be able to selct and copy individual ship SDSs. This makes them pretty useless as I don't want to print out all 119 pages of Brits, just pick out the ones I want for a scenario. It was indicated that this would be possible.Richard

Having helped Mal in a very small way with proofing, I can tell you that they are as nice as the ones released so far - well worth getting hold of when they appear.
