As you can see in the picture below I have a .pdf file that behaves strangely when I try to mark and quote part of its text. I imported it in Citavi 5, tried to print the file with doPDF 8, Microsoft Print to PDF and OpenText PDF converter, the behaviour stayed the same. I also tried other sources, but it seems they are all based on the same file.
When copying directly from the .pdf file, the result looks like this:
Overal the tap “haptic For ou percep speake to noti might than th were ab While others approa casual Most i implan tasks. T the wa rate de
When I use Microsoft XPS Document Writer the output looks like below, with some letters marked double. It looks the same when converted to .txt.
When copying from the file converted to .txt or .xps it looks like this:

So the conversion to .txt is the one that works best, but I would still have to look through the whole quotation to delete double characters.
Does anyone know this kind of behaviour and what I can do to have a file which I can easily quote?
