Question: how to copy text from App Store

Wondered if there were any way to copy text from App Store window (know how to do a screen snapshot) so that I can use the text in another? Am writing up some notes and wanted to include some content from the App Store rather than have to just type it in. Printing to a PDF file would be even better. Any ideas?


Mac Pro, OS X Yosemite (10.10.5), 2008 3,1

Thanks for the tip. It works for some things but not all, so that's a bummer. Will keep looking.

If it were a copyright issue, seems like they would have made sure that both methods (AppStore and PN2's link tip) would have given the same results. Perhaps we should be thankful for what little bit of text we are able to easily make notes with...

Thanks for everyones suggestions...

Well, I take that back ... didn't notice the "...More" link that when clicked on you get the complete text that the App Store had for the apps I was looking to capture the text of. So PN2's tip is working perfect. Thanks so much...
