Scientific articles are usually formatted with two columns. Is there a way to highlight text from only one column with Preview?
Like in my example I want to highlight only from Tree species to less so without the left column.

Hold the ⌥alt/option key as you drag your selection to make rectangular text selections.
Preview does attempt to detect when there are columns in the document and restrict the selection appropriately, but when this fails, you can manually constrain the selection to the column.
