Hello everyone,

I used Windows Vista before. And when I want to copy some text on a PDF file, I will just highlighted the text and right-click on it to Copy. But this option doesn't appear on Windows 8. I tried but I can only highlight the text and unable to copy it. Do I need anything to do it right? If yes, what do I need?

Hello,

There is alternate solution of this PDF related problem. There are also some free software who provides better service then Adobe PDF reader. You can try the Foxit Reader. This is the best PDF reader I have ever used. This software is free too.

Recently they have released the version 6, which is very better then Adobe reader or any other PDF application in market. I think this may solve your problem.

There are number of ways to perform the copying the text from the pdf file.

If the basic procedure ("Select Text" from the drop-down menu OR click the select text button then the pointer changes to a cursor shape. Select the text you want to copy and then paste it at required place) doesn’t work well for you; we have many alternatives as follows

1. Take advantage of the PDF-Copy-Paste-software. Download the software and you can evaluate the software for up to 15 days. You are allowed to crop your desired portion of any PDF document.

2. Download PDF-to-word-converter which converts .pdf files to .doc, .docx or .rtf files. Install the software on your PC.

Select your PDF file, and then click to convert it into your word file. Edit copy or do whatever changes you want to make in your Word file. You can even add images to it.

3. Download the Nitro-Pro-9 software free trial version with 14 days validity and do the copying, editing, moving, deleting and inserting many more tasks in an easy and efficient manner. Go to the URL for the video to get the clear view on how it works.

Yes!  There is Devid James for resolving this problem. As reference, I have chosen Adobe Reader version 6.x. Please follow the instructions. First of all open the PDF file in Adobe Reader then click the 'Tools menu' and ‘Select Text' options respectively. As second step select all the text in the PDF file that you want to copy. Finally switch to Word and click the location where you want to paste the text, and then click Paste on the Edit menu. It solved ! Let’s enjoy!
