Rich Shepard <rshepard at appl-ecosys.com> put forth the proposition:
> When I enter new references into my bibliographic software I've copied the
> abstract (a large block of text) and pasted it into the bibliographic
> application. This has worked fine with PDF versions through 1.2 (perhaps
> 1.4), but definitely not with version 1.7 files. Chunks of text are lost
> when I paste the highlighted text into that application or a text file.
> I've tried xpdf, mupdf, gv, evince, qpdfviewer, zathera, adobe-reader,
> MasterPDFEditor, pdftotext, and others I don't recall.
> Is there a 14.2-compatible tool that allows copying of PDF-1.7 highlighted
Which DE or WM are you using? And are you using the select to copy
and middle-click to paste method, or are you using ^C and ^V
keybinds? How many words or characters are we talking about? It may
be something in your clipboard manager perhaps. Just a thought.
Love is a snowmobile racing across the tundra and then suddenly it flips over,
pinning you underneath. At night, the ice weasels come.
