I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. Even after running (successfully, it seemed) OCR in some documents, I cannot select text for commenting or highlighting; instead, the cursor selects oddly random vertical blocks of text. Is there a setting I need to change?
Screenshot please. What OS & Acrobat version are you using?
Win 10 Pro. Acrobat Pro DC 32 bit. 2021.005.20048. Attached is a screen shot of what happens in this file when I try to select a couple of words. I have run OCR a couple of times. This doesn't happen with all files.
Exactly how far did you get? Did you click the recognize text button?
I clicked recognize text. Even trying to select one word creates the crazy vertical block
Can someone help me on this?
