Copying text that is highlighted to the clipboard - Adobe Acrobat Windows

Hello, I would like to know if there is a way to copy text that is highlighted with the highlighter tool to the clipboard without un-highlighting it first. I can not seem to find any options that would let me do that. Instead when I right click I get the commenting context menu and if I choose edit, copy is not selectable. Any help on finding the trick to doing this would be great. Thanks. Rich...

    Simply use the text tool to mark the text and then clip it. You can also use the text copy tool.

    Thank you. I see what I was doing wrong. I tried to right click after I used the text select tool but this brings up the highlight context menu. Thanks fot the advice. Maybe a feature request would be to invoke the text edit context menu instead of the highlight menu.
