Re: PDF file missing spaces


Brian's Mail list account <bglists@...>
 

Some people say changing the reading order setting can fix it, well, thus far this has not worked. I think the whole thing is a bit of a mess. There are ways to tag files when they are made to stop all this guess ing of reading order but it is poorly understood and seldom used probably due to a third party tool being used to create pdfs.
Is there a simple to understand resource on pdf read order tagging on line one can point troublesome makers of these files at?

I'm not sure you can fix it. I've certainly usually sent to whence it came and managed to get them to send in word format.

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.
