    Why is "Save As Text" SO Slow?

    wxyzboy

      We receive PDF files each week that we then "Save As Text".

       

      In Reader 6, this takes a matter of seconds, but in versions 7, 8 and 9, the same file takes over *eight hours* to save as text!!!  So we have had to revert to Reader 6 on some users' PCs.

       

      The files are about 600K in size and consist simply of numbers and letters- no special characters or graphics.

       

      Does anyone have any idea what's going on here?
