I have searched and found other people describing the same issue but their solutions never work for me.  The person who described it best was: https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-reader-discussions/select-tool-not-working-properly-for-text-...

 

That solution did not work for me. I also tried turning off security settings as another poster recommended.  I uninstalled and reinstalled Acrobat Reader.  It neither works with a downloaded file nor within a browser.  

 

Here is a link to one document in question.  It is accessible publicly.

Here is what the selection looks like

If you can shed any light, that would be most appreciated!
