In Acrobat Pro DC, i want to copy a paragraph with its formatting and paste it in again, in the same pdf. When i highlight the text and right click, the only options i see are Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete and Select all. Similarly under the Edit menu, Copy with formatting does not appear. What should i do, is there preference i need to tick or untick somewhere to make it appear? thank you

Select the text and right mouse click. Then you will see this:

I found something that worked for me.

Edit...Preferences...general...select Make Hand tool select text & images.

Remove the checkmark from "Make Hand tool read articles".

I just tried it on a whim and it worked. I have no idea why this solution was so difficult to locate.

Did the "copy with formatting" option become visible for you after this? Does not work for me at least.

You use Acrobat Reader. The option is not available in Acrobat Reader.

Posting the same answer twice, when the original poster specifically states the option is missing, isn't very helpful.

I had to install on a new PC. I had that option before in the right-click context menu, but now it is missing.

I need to copy text with hyperlinks and can't find the answer to why the "copy with formatting" option is not there.

The missing option Copy With Formatting is only available in Read Mode, not Edit Mode... I know Acrobat is a POS.

 

Leave Edit Mode and with the Selection Tool (the black arrow) you can select text and right click to find the Copy With Formatting option.

 

and no it was not 'Correctly answered by Bernd_Alheit', that answer wasn't even close.

When I paste it is still not keeping my formatting.  It is not lined up at all.
