Hi Everyone,

I've opened a .pdf document in Illustrator with the idea of copying text from the .pdf to a Word document.

Hi HughV,

Thanks for the reply. Sorry I'm a bit late getting back to you. The .pdf file is a bit too big to post here however, while I was figuring out how I could send you a page of it I worked out how to achieve what I wanted. I'd originally opened the .pdf file in Illustrator with the view of editing the parts that I required then copying and pasting those parts into MS Word. I have just realized I can copy the document straight into MS Word and then edit it from there. So, problem solved. Thanks again, sorry to waste you time.

Regards,

John

No problem, that's how we learn. I'm still curious if you were trying to copy a column.

Hi Hughv,

No, it wasn't columns, just straight pages of text.
