Copy from PDF to MS Word with international characters

Recommended Posts

Maybe you are facing the same problem as me. When I copy something from PDF to Word then the characters with punctuation are represented by two characters where the second one is separated punctuation. It makes problem for checkspelling, printing, ...

 

I have created simple workflow to copy UTF-8 NFC normalized text to clipboard. The text can be pasted into Word as expected.

 

I suggest to use Ctrl-Alt-Cmd-C shortcut for the workflow...

 

The workflow also handles translation of the wrong representation of the character "ž" and "Ž" into the correct one (for czech language).

 

Usage:

  • select a text in PDF
  • press the shortcut (for ex. Ctrl-Alt-Cmd-C)
  • switch to Word
  • press Cmd-V

 

Enjoy.
