    Hello all,

    I am looking for a file that will allow me to copy data (generally) text from a PDF then paste it into a new file. The new file will probably just be a notes type app.

    I currently have Goodreader and it allows it, but for some reason when I paste the text I copied alot of it becomes all garbled and runs together.

    I don't know if the issue with Goodreader or something in my PDF.

    I guess part of my question is, a) has anyone else seen this happen with Goodreader and b) any other app recommendations that will allow me to copy the text into another file?

    I am studying for a promotional exam at work and trying to create one clean and simple file of my study material. Data I copy from other type files paste just fine.



    Thanks
    David

    I can paste text from pdfs from Good reader into 'Pages' without a problem and into several note apps. Simple notes, Notability etc. Maybe your pdf..

    Best.

    Thats what I'm thinking it is too. Something to do with the formatting.

    Thanks for the reply.
