When I try to highlight a line in a PDF, 5-10 items above it, and 30 items below it highlight as well. This varies. Sometimes it is 2 items above and 50 items below, or 12 above and 2 below.
Try holding down the Ctrl key or Cmd key on the Mac. This will give you a bounding box that you can use to select a specific area.
Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, it did not work. Still not working properly.
It looks like the PDF is not created correctly.
Try using Shift + Arrow Keys to precise your selection.
Do you know what program this was created in? You can check in the File > Properties dialog.
