I am an Apple user and currently I'm using the latest version of Adobe Reader DC as well as the latest operating system Mac OS 11.4. I depend on extracting texts from PDF files in both French and German. So far, this has always worked perfectly. Recently, however, Adobe seems to have a problem with copying special symbols. Other Mac users in our company have the same issue (since about 2 weeks). Instead of a special symbol, only a space is inserted. What can we do? I have already contacted various computer scientists who have gone through everything. They told me all it seems to be a problem that comes along with the latest update from Adobe DC.
This is a bug of Acrobat Reader.
Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble.
We are aware of this issue and its reported to our engineering team to find the fix. We will share the update as soon as we will hear anything from them.
Thanks for your time and patience
