The Newspaper file won't let me copy it.
Tried to download it but failed

I guess if it's pay to view, we all have to pay.

I dont think there is any sub to these sort of records and everyone will have to pay, to view

A pdf cannot usually be copied/pasted, unless you have the 'know how' ;-)

Sorry Choccy, no attachment received :-(

Do you perhaps have to make image into pdf then save to a folder, then export from folder.

If this sounds "gobbledygook" its because I aint got a clue really :-D
