I wrote a novel on Scrivener and then created a PDF of it for queries. Agents like to ask to read only 5-50 pages. When I copy the pages from the PDF in Preview and then paste it into Mail, the format – even though I’ve clicked on “Paste and Match Format” is not the same, especially the dialog, with each character’s dialog on a separate line. It often runs these lines together, and extra spaces are added in the middle of paragraphs, etc. How can I send a copy of the text exactly as it is in the PDF?
I need to copy the partial text of the PDF rather than send the entire PDF as an attachment because agents want the first 5 or sometimes 50 pages pasted into the body of the email.
