On iPad: Is it possible to select only a single word when press? Currently a random number of words before or after that word are selected.
Yes, it is possible to select a single word from the text in the PDF.
If you long press on a particular word, only that word gets selected.
If you are not able to select the word in that way, you may drag the selection to the single word or character from the selected text.
Take help of the steps mentioned under "Selecting text" in the following help document Adobe Reader Help for iOS: Annotating Pages.
Hope that helps.
Let us know if you experience any issue.
Thanks! I knew that, but it selects more than one word most of the time.
Could you please check if you experience the similar behavior when you select text in other applications?
Selecting text is not an application feature.
I have tried to replicate the same on our end. It selects one word at a time.
Please try to check on other files or applications.
Let us know how it goes.
Other apps work well.
Actually, I tried with the Getting Started pdf, it works well,
But for other pdf (mine are academic papers), it doesn't.
Is it possible to share any PDF on which you experience this behavior?
We would like to replicate the same on our end.
To share the file you can take help of the steps mentioned here How to share a file using Adobe Document Cloud
You can also initiate a private message to share the file using the steps provided here How Do I Send Private Message
Sorry for the delay in response.
