sounds like the pdf doc is an image only and contains no text and need to go through an OCR process...can you left-click an highlight any text?

There are only text, no images. I click on the page, I select some text, etc. Only thing I hear is "Blank Page...". One possibility I can think of, this feature maybe disallowed in free version. If not then I possibly need to change some setting somewhere.

There is no select option in right-click. With Edit>select all, it still doesn't read with the short cut Ctrl + Shift + V (per menu).

Even with image, it should read its Alternate text. To do a test I copied a selected portion of text in this file to paste it here:

"SQL Server 2012 and have some experience"

So, this test shows what I have it actually text.

Maybe is helpful if you post here the pdf file, or at least 1 page from it.
It is important that others have your pdf ot parts of it to be tested on other systems.
