    Copy text from a PDF to word. Just get Symbols

    SebastiaoV Community Member



      I have a public PDF with no Copying Restrictions. When I try to copy text from the PDF highlighted text to WORD I only get unreadable garbage.
      I can select the desired text and copy it into word but when I paste the text it is pasted like symbols and lines.


      I tried Special Paste and does not works. It says the font is a Gill Sans something (with numbers and so on), no really a font it seems but when i change it to Arial i still get symbols.


      Any help or ideas,
