We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
I've used Adobe Pro for years, and this is only on my new windows 10 gaming computer. It won't let me Highlight/Copy/Paste anymore....instead it puts verticle blue frames on the page and I can no longer copy anything.
I can't seem to find a setting for this?
May be that there is no text only images.
There is only text on these documents and it is only happening on my new computer...it has to be some setting.
The document is composed out of images. You have to first run Text Recognition on it, and if the results are successful then you would be able to select and copy the text.
Thank you for reaching out.
Adding to the above suggestion.
It seems that you are using a scanned PDF. You may also refer to the information provided in the following help lnk: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/edit-scanned-pdfs.html.
Let us know if you need any help.
Nope, these are not scanned documents, they are original adobe pdf's. AND it is only happening on my new computer, so it must be a setting??
Can you share a sample file with us?
Could you please share the screenshot or a small video of what happens when you try to highlight the text?
Would you mind sharing the sample PDF with us so we can check it on our end?
Share the application and OS version on the machine.
