Kindle for PC - copy/paste

Highlight text, then click on Copy - but it copies only a small part of what I highlighted. Any idea what might be going wrong? Thanks! ...Steve

Maybe you've hit the publisher's clipping limit for that book? They don't want someone copying and pasting the entire book.

Go to this link:

https://kindle.amazon.com/your_reading

ALL your highlights and notes are listed there by book. So far as I know, there are NO limits to the amount stored there. You can then copy and paste from there to anywhere else.

Plus, you can read the highlights and notes of all other readers of that particular ebook if they have given permission to make their reading information public.

The only bug with that site is, if you remove one of your eBooks from it, you can never get it back there.

I thought that was only for actual Kindles, not for apps?
