How to copy/paste Cyrillic characters from PDF?
January 19, 2013 7:23 PM Subscribe
For years, I've accepted as fact that Russian-language PDFs don't play nice with other programs. That if you tried to paste copied text into Word or Notepad, you'd get gibberish characters. (I work on two laptops, one with Windows Vista and Acrobat, the other Windows 7 and Reader.) Are there any clever workarounds or programs I should know about?

Googling this issue only confused me more. Someone on one forum mentioned installing "freeware" Cyrillic fonts, but searching for that led me to some sketchy sites with (admittedly cool-looking) skateboarder-style graphic fonts, but I can't imagine that would help...
