Getting text out of a map
To copy the text contents of a map, perhaps for transfer to another application, you have these options.
The List menu
The List menu offers options for copying various kinds of item into a Phrase Box or Text Markup window. From here, the items can be copied to your computer's clipboard or saved to a file. A Phrase Box can save text files which can be opened in applications such as Microsoft Word.
Copy and Paste
Click on the node with the Pen tool. Select Edit/Copy. This makes a copy of the node's text in your computer's clipboard. The text can now be copied into another application (e.g. Microsoft Word) by switching to that application and selecting Edit/Paste.
