    Can't search pdf file

    Community Member

      I have some pdf files that opens, prints etc. just fine. But i can't search fo word in them. It simplys doesn't find words that actually are in the document.

      If I copy/paste some of the text to Word (or anywhere else) it shows strange charecters:

               

      this should have said: INTERNATIONAL

       

      My thought is that it could be some strange kind of copy protection of documents to prevent copy/paste from the document, that as a side effect messes up the search function...

       

      Any ideas what to do or what is wrong?
