Re: PDF file missing spaces

the best thing I have found is to do OCR on the file and let the OCR program insert the spaces where they belong.

Hi everyone,

I know I've come across this before but I just can't recall the solution. I've got a PDF file which when I read it, parts of it read with no spaces between words (ditto copying the text out or saving to a text file).

It is something to do with how Adobe Reader interprets the spaces in files created with certain other products, but what I can't remember, is how do I fix it, please?

Regards

Quentin.
