    Select tool highlights area above/below selected area.

      I have received a 2 page pdf that I am copying and pasting data from.

      On most of the pdf the select tool works as expected. drag tool over desired text, ctrl + C to copy then open word and Ctrl V to paste. However there is a section where selecting a line of text actually highlights the blank line above or below depending on the what side of the horizontal middle line of the text you are. Doing the rest of the operation Copy and then paste results in the selected text being pasted even though the area that was highlighted was a blank area.

      I am using Adobe Reader 8.1.2 and would appreciate any suggestions. Is there perhaps certain attributes on the pdf which are corrupted or prevent copying? if this was possible how could I check for it?

      Thanks in advance
