Hi Tttong,

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.

Regards,

Meenakshi

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.

Regards,

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.
