Hey everyone,

 

I'm doing some translation work that involves copying and pasting chunks of text out of scanned PDF documents (originals are in German). A few weeks ago, I noticed that Acrobat stopped recognizing German characters (specifically ä, ö, & ß) and now leaves an empty space where the letters are when copied and pasted into a text editing software (so a word like "hätte" reads like "h tte"). I just re-installed the program but still no luck. Any suggestions?

 

Thank you!
