There is this small problem i am encountering from some time back and i would like to share and take help of u brilliant guys sitting here.
When i am copying text from pdf and paste to word or excel or powerpoint, it gets paste well with same content what i have copied but the copied text is also in same paragraph format. I mean, If the text in pdf is in next line then it will be pasted in word/excel/powerpoint in next line only (as when changing paragraph we press enter key to start new line) although there is still space left on above line....
pic 1 is pdf format i copied:
How to copy text from pdf to word/excel as a continous text....(16 posts)
I hope the problem is well understood, I would like to get the text copied as in pic 3 without actually going to end line of each line and then pressing delete command to pick up the next line every time. Its the small portion of ebook i have shown as an example.....
have you tried pasting the text into notepad?
if not, paste it into notepad to see if theres any difference > make sure word wrap is enabled before you paste > and if it pastes the way you want it to - right click > select all > copy > then paste it into the other program to see if it remains the same.
just a thought. maybe worth a shot.
You can paste the text in Microsoft Word, then go to "Home > Editing > Replace" at the rightmost of the toolbar (or simply CTRL+H), then search for "^p" (without quotes) and replace with a space. Click on Replace All and you should be done. But you might lose paragraphs if you remove endlines automatically. If a double endline is used between paragraphs, you can replace "^p^p" with "[PARAGRAPH]" first, then "^p" with " ", then "[PARAGRAPH]" with "^p".
