An even better way to cut and paste from two-column documents using Acrobat:
After choosing the Text Select Tool (the "T"), hold down the Ctrl key. The
cursor will change to an I-bar with a little rectangle superimposed. Hold
down the left mouse button and drag from one corner of the area you want to
select to the other. Once the desired text is highlighted, click on the
Copy button. Works like a charm!
