    copy text feature?

      hi.i'm trying to copy the text from my pdf files in DE but the copied text when pasted on notepad or word, doesnt have any format. the spaces that separates words are gone and it becomes a longgg word.. like this "thespacesthatseparateswordsregoneandtbecomesalongggword"

      is this a bug or the feature is still incomplete?

          This is a consequence of how the PDF was constructed. PDF does not inherently have ANY spaces in it. The PDF engine under DE tries to guess (based on the geometry of the characters) where there might be spaces. Usually it does a good job, but sometimes not. Is this a publicly available PDF that we could look at?
