Hi Carl A Nichols,
Please let us know the version of Windows mobile you are using.
Are you able to select the text on your mobile?
If yes, then a circular Copy icon will appear just above the selected text.
Make sure the document is not secured.
I have Windows Phone 8.1.
The latest ADOBE Reader update occurred on February 2, 2016, bringing me to "v 188.8.131.5227".
I have used the Reader app from ADOBE since it became available to the Windows Phone Platform, and I have always been able to 'Select' text, then copy it to use (Paste) elsewhere.
Since this latest UPDATE, I can still select text, but now I can only "Highlight", "Strikethrough", or "Underline" the selection in an UNPROTECTED document. In a PROTECTED document, I can only SELECT text. No options to perform ANY tasks are available!
I have a document (of my own creation) that contains numerous passwords. -- some of them very long and cryptic. This document is password PROTECTED for security. I normally use the "Copy / Paste" function to use these passwords, thus avoiding errors in typing, and to avoid the possibility of a spyware app from tracking keystrokes.
Please help! I rely on the ADOBE Reader app heavily.
I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you. But currently we do not have option of copy/paste in Windows phone 8.1 due to technical limitation in the OS.
Thank you for the response. I hope ADOBE is planning to provide another update the restores the COPY / PASTE functionality.
