Copying Text in Acrobat Pro

Copying text from a pdf is simple enough using the Select tool. However, if you want to copy several lines of text and paste it into another document, you might discover a slightly niggling issue: every line is considered to be a new paragraph!

To avoid this, go to the Tools menu > Advanced Editing and then the TouchUp Text Tool.
