Re: PDF file missing spaces

Tony Malykh

For what it's worth, one more potential solution that I found is to use Google Chrome - it comes with a PDF reader, that seems to understand spaces between words better. If the file is on your local computer, then just type its full path into the address bar (e.g. "C:\Users\tony\SomeFile.pdf"). Or if the file is online, just ytpe its URL in the adress bar.

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?
