BUG Copy/Paste Text from PDF

Recommended Posts

I noticed Publisher has a bug when pasting text copied out of a PDF document: the german accented characters are not properly encoded. See screenshots

I also do experience unexpected text paste from PDF to AfPub: one single word copied from PDF into a text editor works fine whereas in .afpub its characters get separated by line breaks, each with the hidden symbol §. (end of text frame content?)

Hi @postmadesign,

Do you use the same font or a font that support those characters?

Thanks,

Gabe. 

It imports as a different font, but that does not really influence the encoding of the characters, which are all basic and available in every regular font like the one above.
