Copy PDF text broken


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows XP Professional SP2

Description of the issue

In all prior versions, we could print scripts to PDF and then the text would all be available for copy/paste.  In vs. 11, it only allows me to copy comments - all specific script steps are no longer available.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Find a script with comments and also script steps (it doesn't matter which script steps).  Print to PDF then try to drag select all of the script or even Edit > Select All.

YOu will only be able to grab the comments.

Expected result

We should be able to copy all of the text.  When saving as Word.doc, the comments are text and the script steps themselves are graphics.

Actual result

We are using Adobe Acrobat Professional 8.1.3.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

However FMI is sending this information to PDF needs to be fixed so it can be grabbed when PDF.


None that I have found yet.
