Generally speaking, InDesign's type engine differs from pretty much everything else.
Even so, you should be able to copy/paste text from ID into a plain text editor. Are you certain there are no 3rd party clipboard utilities in the mix?
Try unchecking "copy PDF to clipboard" in your prefs.
Thanks for replying!
I tried unchecking "copy PDF", and also quit the only slightly-clipboard related app I use, Quicksilver, but it didn't fix the problem.
Does anyone have any other ideas?
You could export text to a file… and work on from that.
Yeah, that's what I've been doing. To copy into an email, for instance, I have to open it in TextEdit, copy, paste… Lots of steps.
We always appreciate your referrals.
