I'm having a problem relating to line breaks when copying text from scanned and OCRd documents.
Having downloaded and installed Acrobat Pro DC 64-bit on a new machine on 3 May 2022, I get hard line breaks when I copy and paste (into Word or Notepad) from scanned .pdfs in which I have recogned the text. This did not happen with my previous installation on my previous machine - I was able to copy blocks of text within a paragraph and the text was continuous - no hard line breaks appeared.
It is important to note that the problem is not with the file itself. When I save the same document to the Adobe Document Cloud and open it in my web browser (i.e. not in the desktop version of Acrobat Pro DC), I am able to cut and paste without hard line breaks.
I am also having problems with a range of other bugs, such when I right click the tool bar and hover over "show edit tools", I get an error saying an "internal error occurred"
I have reinstalled and repaired Acrobat DC over ten times in the last week but each time I get slightly different errors. My current version is 2022.001.20117
This is extremely frustrating. It seems that the downloaded installation file is full of bugs. Would it be possible to download a non-buggy working version.
Please assist urgently?

1) I should say that I have now "got rid of" the remaining bugs by installing the 32-bit version of Acrobat Pro DC.
2) I am, however, still experience the problem with copy and paste (i.e. I get line breaks when I copy from the desktop version, but not when I do so online from Document cloud.
Try running Autotag on the document. For some reapson, Acrobat often inserts hard returns at line breaks. I think that Autotag might take care of that.
Do you know if there is any way to automatically autotag all .pdf files as they are opened (or created)?
