Re: PDF file missing spaces

That's not true. Firefox doesn't come with a PDF viewer. It can open Acrobat Reader ActiveX control right inside the browser window, but then you'll have exactly the same problem as with opening PDF file directly in Acrobat Reader. Same is true of IE. Edge has its own PDF reader, but I don't know whether  its any good, but might be worth trying.

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?
