When I copy from Arabic PDF file to word I get only scribble, I have tried to convert the whole file to word but I have get the same also.

  • Do u have the font (same Arabic font in PDF) in your computer? It could be just a font issue if you are unable to copy. Also try to convert PDF to Word online. This may get you the Arabic text in Word file – Prasanna Mar 24 '17 at 6:48
  • converting online did not solve the issue, I will check the font and let you know – Mr.lock Mar 24 '17 at 6:52

As long as it is a computer readable document it might work copy-pasting it in notepad ++ -works fine for me.. (as long as there is no latin letters involved: it makes parts of the text being placed wrong, which can be rather disturbing) .. If someone has a solution for that I would be very grateful! (maybe even after all these years it would help this guy as well: Convert PDF with Arabic and English Fonts to Word)
