I’m sad

I miss the option of copy pasting lines from parts of books

As a developer I sometimes like to copy some lines of code to my program. Unfortunately the page prevents me from copying text. I would definitely like such functionality (without having to email/download a page, which takes more time).

  • Hello,

    Thank you for writing. Are you referring to Safari Books Online, and the ability to copy & paste code from our online titiles? If so, you should be able to do that from the HTML version of any of our books.

    Some books, due to rich graphics content, are not available in HTML format, and therefore you cannot copy and paste from those titles. The majority of our books are available in HTML format however.

    If you have further questions or need assistance, please contact Customer Service at or 800.775.7330 (US Only), or 707.827.4118.

    Thank you.
