    Text selection in PDF goes wrong in Adobe Reader

    RobertJanssen

      As you can see in the PDF below the text selection goes wrong in old an newer versions of Adobe Reader / DC.

      The text selection works fine in Google Chrome PDF Viewer and Foxit Reader. What could be the problem?

      I'm unable to upload the Word or PDF file here?

          I opened the PDF with a text editor. The PDF contains:

           

          <</Type/FontDescriptor/FontName/DBBWHF+Calibri/FontBBox[16 -9 6713378 52705]/Flags 32

          /Ascent 52705

           

          I've got the same PDF, but then a version were the text selection is OK. It contains this:

           

          <</Type/FontDescriptor/FontName/DBBWHF+Calibri/FontBBox[0 -9 859 683]/Flags 32

          /Ascent 683

           

          Both PDF files derive from a Microsoft Word document. What could this be?
