one thought just for start:
After sending a pdf to the client for review
ensure you're sending pdf with compatibility set to Acrobat 5 (PDF 1.4) or higher. I noticed version 1.3 CAN produce problems with pasting russian text from pdf back to indd, word or whatever...
If it's not the case, than you probably could supply us with examples of your pdf's?
And - as usually - what's your OS?
Thank you for the reply, I appreciate it. I am using Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro,
and have both CS4 and CS6 available, same issue on both computers (XP). I
have attached an example, a page from the PDF that I received from the
client with a Russian word change. The new word will paste in ID with Basic
paragraph style applied, but when I change the style to one of my own
styles the characters change. I discovered that some of my other paragraph
styles do not change the characters, just some of them. Maybe a setting in
my styles is different? Maybe this helps.
Thanks again in advance for any insight!
oh, sorry, I didn't warn you, file attachments are disabled at forum, you can upload it somewhere and post a link here (better option, because someone else could join us) or send me pm.
whatever. You said, some of your styles keep chars right? It could be a font - it must contain cyrrilic glyphs to display chars properly (you can hit Alt+Shift+F11 and check it in Glyphs palette) with text cursor in text.
anyhow, it would be nice to see files: pdf and indd (CS4 or idml). I'm on CS 5.5.
Have you tried "Paste Without Formatting"? That should use the cahracters onthe clipboard, and the current style information at the cursor location.
Yes, I would like to get you the indd file and the pdf I am trying to copy
from...how could I do that? Can you send me a regular email?
