Selecting all of the text in a PDF document seems like it would be a fairly straightforward process, right? Sometimes it is, but things get tricky when a PDF has more than one page. If you’ve attempted to select all of the text in a PDF document but are only grabbing one page at a time, you’re not alone. Fortunately, this issue can be resolved in Adobe Acrobat Reader. Check out the guide below. Using Adobe Acrobat Reader Get the latest version of Acrobat Reader.If you already have Acrobat Reader installed, ensure that you have the latest version. To do this, click “Check for Updates.” If an update is available, click “Install.” If no updates are necessary, proceed to the next step. If you don’t have Acrobat Reader, point your web browser to get.adobe.com/reader. Remove the checkmarks next to the two “Optional Offers” (McAfee Security and TrueKey), then click “Install Now.” When the “Finish” button turns green, click it to complete the installation. Open your PDF file in Acrobat Reader.Double-click the PDF file to open it in your updated version of Acrobat Reader. Make sure the document view is not set to Single Page View. Open the View menu and select “Page Display.” There should not be a check next to “Single Page View.” If there is, remove it by clicking “Enable Scrolling.” In order to select the entirety of the document (rather than just one page), this step is crucial. Select all text in the document. Click somewhere in the document, then press Ctrl+A (Windows) or ⌘ Command+A (Mac) to select all text in the document. Copy the text. Once the text is selected, you can copy it by pressing Ctrl+C (Windows) or ⌘ Command+C (Mac). Another way to do this is to open the Edit menu and select “Copy File to Clipboard.” Paste the text into another program. To paste the text into another program, click where you’d like to add the text and press Ctrl+V (Windows) or Ctrl+V on Mac.. Thanks for reading and do have a great day.
