Hi,
you don't need one.
Just select the text then select copy [or ctrl/c]
Then paste it somewhere.
cheers

Thanks for the info, but I already know this about cutting and pasting :)

I remember seeing this plugin mentioned on a computer show a long time ago and when you select an area on a page it then renders a new page displaying only what you selected. It's sort of like a custom printing, for example when you highlight a section on a page you want to print, you choose selection from the print dialog box. This plugin does something similar to the example I mentioned but on a webpage instead on a printer.

For now, I'm just cutting and pasting but it gets tedious at times.
