I'm trying to copy text from a PDF file, but I get garbage. I'm using Document Reader on Ubuntu to read the document. It's not like its not allowing me to copy, but just that the copied text looks like this:
RFRPSLOHJFFDUSVQLIIHUFRDUSVQLIIOSFDS 5XQDVURRW LQFOXGHSFDSK! LQFOXGHVWGOLEK! LQFOXGHVWULQJK! $53+HDGHUDVVXPLQJ(WKHUQHW,3Y GH¿QH$53B5(48(67 $535HTXHVW GH¿QH$53B5(3/< $535HSO\ W\SHGHIVWUXFWDUSKGU^ XBLQWBWKW\SH +DUGZDUH7\SH XBLQWBWSW\SH 3URWRFRO7\SH XBFKDUKOHQ +DUGZDUH$GGUHVV/HQJWK XBFKDUSOHQ 3URWRFRO$GGUHVV/HQJWK XBLQWBWRSHU 2SHUDWLRQ&RGH XBFKDUVKD>@ 6HQGHUKDUGZDUHDGGUHVV XBFKDUVSD>@ 6HQGHU,3DGGUHVV XBFKDUWKD>@ 7DUJHWKDUGZDUHDGGUHVV XBFKDUWSD>@ 7DUJHW,3DGGUHVV
What can I do to fix this? its a large amount of data will take a really long time to type.
Also, incidentally, the pasted text looked like this on gedit (Ubuntu):
(notice that it looks different when pasted here in this question!)
I sense it is somehow an encoding problem, but I have no way of knowing how to fix this.
