How do you copy some text or say a paragraph  ( not the text you have just typed in )  from a Pdf and paste it into another page or other location in the same pdf.  Sometimes you want to copy a part

and paste to another part of the same pdf. I have used the select/ snapshot  to copy the section and it copies to a clipboard but when I go to right click & paste on another area

there is no paste feature.

Thx for the help.

Hello @eagan,

Thank you for posting on our Community Forums!

You have to make sure that the text is editable to be able to copy and paste it on to another area. If the text is editable, click on the edit tool. Double click on the text, highlight and copy so you can paste it successfully.

I hope that helps! Cheers!

Hi Leslie

Does that mean to make editable I think it has to be OCR'd.  When I OCR the page why does it take so long as the process is quite slow and that is why

I never do it. On the Nitro vids I see its faster , is there a setting I'm missing?

 

Thx

Hello @eagan,

Since the OCR tool takes the information contained in the document and essentially recreates the file so that you can edit the information, there may be some slowness issues. 

It will also directly tie to your computers processing power. If you find that it's taking a long time to process your document or work with it, then you can try to split it up into smaller sections while you work on it. Then combine it after it has been OCR'd. Different files give different results, so you may need to do some trial and error to find what works best for your files.

I hope that helps!

OCR on version 12 does not work as good or as accurately as the OCR on version 7.5 Nitro Pro. I have the latter and am reviewing the former for a possible upgrade. In this feature, Nitro Pro has taken a giant leap backward in capability as the earlier version is much more accurate!!!
