    copying from pdf comes out in single column

      Hi,

      I recent turned 3 word documents into PDFs using the "Print" feature on my mac from within Word. Two of them came out great. The third one LOOKS great, but when you try to copy the text from the PDF and then paste into a Word document (or notepad or anywhere!), it appears with one word per line, like one long column.

      It

      ends

      up

      looking

      like

      this!

      The other two PDFs copy and paste just fine. We do want our users to be able to copy and paste parts of these documents, and I can't figure out what is different about the third PDF. Even if I just highlight two words in the middle of a sentence and try to paste those, they still show up in a column format with one word per line.

       

      Any ideas how to get rid of this without actually retyping the entire Word document?

      Thanks so much in advance!
