Re: PDF file missing spaces

But pdfs do not allow editing do they? And of course when stripped out the odd chars simply get left out and hence no spaces.

If you could identify the character that does not get recognized as a space, copy it and do a global search and replace, might that work?

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?
