As of the time that this article was written, PDF Snipping Tool is intended to work with Microsoft operating systems alone. It is not known whether or not a version for Mac systems will be added in the future.
The current version of this program has been designed to be used with personal computers. However, there are similar options available for Android phones. The most popular is simply known as Snipping Tool.
PDF Snipping Tool has been specifically engineered to work in combination with the Microsoft Office Suite and the latest versions are supported. As this integration is more automatic than cutting and pasting, it can save you a good deal of time.
One of the main benefits of this software package is that it is very flexible in terms of the areas of a page that you are able to select. You can "snip" a rectangular segment or you can choose to copy the entire page of a document.
In addition to the entire Microsoft Office suite, this program is able to work with a number of third-party bundles. Some examples here include CorelDraw, Visio, PowerPoint and Adobe Photoshop.
