How do you tell Vanguard, for example, that you just want to take dividends from a bond fund? I thought you would have to sell shares of the bond fund at NAV to get a distribution.

Most (all?) bond funds distribute their dividends on a regular schedule -- monthly, quarterly, etc. You have the option of taking the distribution in cash or reinvesting in additional shares.

In the article, they are talking about these distributions, not a sale of existing shares.
