I'm using lineno for a document. I have it configured to put line numbers in the margins of the document. I generate PDF using pdflatex. Here's the problem: when people copy a region of text in a PDF previewer (Acrobat, or Mac OS X's Preview), the line numbers are included in the text that's copied. This leads to confusing text when they paste it into another document or application.
Is there a way to make it so that the line numbers are ignored when someone copies text from within a PDF previewer? I would like just the main text to be copied, not the line numbers.
