How resolve font issue with pdf
Posted on 2009-12-30
I have several pdf files with English and Arabic words. When I copy the Arabic words from one of these pdf files and paste them into Word, I get meaningless characters.
I suspect the authors used fonts on their computer that I do not have loaded on mine?
How do I diagnose the problem and resolve it (without having to pay) so I can copy and paste Arabic text from these pdf files to a word document?
Running Vista with latest Adobe Reader 9.
PS - tried to post an example:
Copying "5DQP" will paste as "|e"
The Arabic letters (Saad-Lam with some diacrtic marks) displayed fine when I typed up this question, but upon submitting it, the letters now display "5DQP"?!
