  • why I cannot copy text from a pdf ?

    That I know the part of the text I need to copy it is not copy right protected.
    Tapping over the text does not select anything.
    I think the question would be can Foxit Mobile copy text ?

    Foxit MobilePDF supports to copy text. I think the problem could be related to specific PDF document that you try to copy. Is it possible to provide us the following info so we could further check the problem?
    1) Version number of your Foxit MobilePDF Reader;
    2) OS info;
    3) The PDF document in question for testing purpose;
    4) Where did you try to copy text from a PDF document to? (Copy the text as note or typewriter text on the same page? copy the text to other app?)

    Thank you.

        I tried again per your instruction, I can copy the text to gmail message fine. Is it possible to record your operation to reproduce the issue so we could further check with our engineer? Thank you.

            Can you email the video to [email protected] if it is less than 10MB or upload it to a cloud storage like OneDrive and share us a link to download the video?
