How to Copy and Paste the contents of a PDF file into a new file

 


This article shows you how to copy and paste from a pdf. If the PDF file was created from a document on your computer, you can use the free Acrobat Reader program to copy the content; however, if a PDF file is scanned (scanned) onto a computer from a paper document or has anti-copy enabled, you will need to use Google Drive to recognize and convert the text. You can use an online converter to convert PDF files into Microsoft Word documents directly if both of the above options are ineffective.

      Open Acrobat Reader.

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is Adobe's free PDF viewer. Depending on the type of PDF downloaded, you can select and copy the contents of the PDF file using this program.

If you do not have Adobe Reader, you can download and install it for free.

      Open the PDF file.

Click File, select Open in the pop-up menu, select your PDF file, and click Open in the lower-right corner of the window.

If Adobe Reader is not the default PDF program, simply double-click the PDF file you want to view to open it with Acrobat Reader.

      Click Edit in the upper-left corner of the Acrobat Reader window (on Windows) or in the upper-left corner of the screen (on a Mac). The screen will display a list of choices.

      Click Select All in the Edit menu. This is the action of selecting all the text on the page, except for the image.

If all of the text is highlighted in blue, you cannot copy and paste the text as text. You will need to use Google Drive.

      Click Edit again, and then click Copy to copy the selected text.

If the PDF file has multiple pages, you will have to go back and copy each other after pasting the contents of this page

      Open a new document. Usually, you'll need to open a program like Microsoft Word, Pages, or Google Docs.

You can use a text editor like Notepad or TextEdit, but the format of the PDF will be changed if you use this option.

      Paste the copied content by pressing Ctrl + V (on Windows) or Command + V (on a Mac). You will see the content copied from the PDF displayed in the text.

If the keyboard shortcut doesn't work, you can click on the blank page of the text and try again.

You can also right-click on the page and select Paste in the pop-up menu.

      Use this method when the PDF file contains the text encoded into an image. Scanned PDF files are often displayed as image files instead of text files. You will need to use Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to convert images into selectable text. Google Drive comes with a free built-in OCR service for uploading PDF files and is usually effective in most cases. [1]

      If the PDF file has the copy protection feature set, Google Drive cannot remove the PDF file protection setting during OCR.

Open Google Drive by going to https://drive.google.com/ from your favorite browser. This will open the Google Drive page if you're signed in.

If you aren't logged into your Google account, enter your email address and password before continuing.

      Select Open with near the top of the menu. You will see another menu show up next to this option.

      Click Google Docs in the menu. This will require Drive to scan the text of the PDF file into a Google Doc - this may take a little time depending on the file's text length.

      Check to see which text has been converted. The Google Drive OCR program is not perfect and may cause errors or not convert all the text. You will see a lot of white space between sections; so check to make sure the entire text has been converted. If you get an error, you can fix it in Google Docs before copying the text.

      Select text. Click Edit in the upper-left corner of the page, then select Select all from the menu.
