    What to do about text truncated from Adobe Reader

    gabby l

      Have a PDF file that when I copy from Adobe 9.0 or 9.3 and then paste into Word 2003 or Word 2007, the text is NOT complete.

      When I copy the same document's contents using Adobe 6 and then paste into Word 2003 or Word 2007, the text is complete.

      I use the Edit | Copy File to Clipboard then switch to Word and paste it.

      If I use Word's Edit | Paste Special command and paste it as plain text, I get the entire text.

      It also occurs if I copy just a subsection with the Edit | Copy command.

      The only pattern I have found is that the copied text seems to stop after text that is pasted as a table in the Word document.

      If I paste the Clipboard's contents into Notepad or Excel, I get the entire document.

      WordPad also truncates the text.

      I tried other programs and found that if what is pasted in is the RTF version of the Clipboard text, then the Clipboard text is truncated after the first table. If the text version of the Clipboard's contents are pasted, the entire text is present.

       

      So, what do I need to do in order to get all of the text when I paste the text into Word (as RTF), I get all of the text.
