I am doing a series of text correction for a game, and recieved the pdf of corrections from the customer. I use preview as a pdf reader.

On windows, I can freely copypaste the content back and forth, but for some reason, when I try on my mac, the sentences gets jumbled around.

As you can see from this screenshot, i copy the text from the right, and paste it in the tool on the left (Smultron) and the lines have changed order.

Does anyone know what might have caused this ? Happends repeatingly, and other

The copying

    That green text looks like a different PDF element. Probably that’s why. – duci9y Nov 26 '12 at 9:52
  • Do you have the same problem with Adobe Reader? – Tom Gewecke Nov 26 '12 at 13:04

I have the exact same problem all of the time. The only solution I have found is to try different PDF readers such as Tom has suggested and use Adobe Reader. PDFPen, Wondershare PDF Editor, and Skim are other options.
