When I open particular PDF service manual for my HP printer I have problems with copying part of it, error.jpg search for words is not working, the result of copying is on the screenshot attached.

Most annoying is that search is not finding what I see in document.

I can print this document correctly. So this is not issue displaying nor printing.

But working with it is unbearable...

What is wrong with it?

Please help.

OK.

It looks like a (PostScript) font encoding issue.

This PDF was made with Distiller 3.0 and is 23 years old, so I guess there is nothing that we can do to repair it.

 

Using Acrobat Pro you can try this:

1- Export all pages as TIFF (or PNG) images,

2- Combine all these images and run the OCR.
