I've also ran into this issue.

I've noticed that if you get the PDF to 'jump' several times with Ctrl+C, eventually it stops jumping and you can use the copy/paste function without the disorientation.

Thank you Charlie for your response. I believe you hit the nail on the head.  If I Edit> Edit Content>Select All and paste into a note pad, "Officer Station" in the PDF is "Ocer Station" on the notepad and "Medicaid Office"  in the PDF is "Medicaid Oce" in the notepad and "PREA Office" in the PDA is "PREA Oce" in the notepad. Appears the scanning or save as PDF, process the owner used had some scanning issues. Thanks again

I've noticed bluebeam has a hissy fit with some fonts so it might have something to do with that. I've also accepted that bluebeam is REDACTED for finding text so I use other editors for that haha.

If you edit the pdf text using Edit > PDF Content > Edit Text, how does it cope with it? If you copy the text directly from the Edit Text into the text searching box, does that do anything differently?

Could be a secret double space between officer and station?

Question for the group regarding Text Searching a PDF. Have a document, 1429 pages, not protected. Searching for key word "Officer Station" and want to find that in the complete document. If I uncheck "Case Sensitive", and uncheck " Whole Words Only", and only select current page to limit the results, after the Search, no match have been found. Clearly, I can see 2 instances of "Officer Station" on this current page. If I search for "Station" it will find both instances but also finds Station as part of "Nurse Station", which I only want Officer Station. If I search the letter "r", it finds all the "r" on the page including the "r" in Officer. If I search for the letter "e", again same results including the letter "e" in Officer. Same results for letter "c", selecting all "c" included on page as well as the "c" in Officer. Now it gets interesting. If I search for the letter "i", it returns all the i's on the page except the "i" in Officer, but does find the letter "i" in Station. If I search for the combined letters of "cer", it will find the "cer of Officer. If I search for "icer" it will NOT find the "icer" of Officer. It will not find the letter "f" in Officer, but will find "o" of  Officer.  If I search for "cer Station" it will find both instances. If I open the page in a web browser and use the search function looking for "Officer Station", the browser will find both instances. I have OCR'd the page and received same results as listed above. Just wondering if anyone else has found search errors close to this.

It only prints the selected layers when I 'Print' and select "Print to PDF'.

Exporting as an image also works, but then I lose the quality converting back to a pdf.

Surely, as a pdf software, you should be able to export as a high quality pdf of the selected layers???? What is the point in hiding/showing layers if you cannot export them individually?

It seems like it should work with those check boxes in the layer tab... if life were that simple

Out of interest how are you exporting to pdf? Isn't an option for me. Thanks.

I am trying to only publish/export selected layers of my drawing, however, all attempts to publish/export show ALL layers, even when I only have the ones I want selected.
Printing to PDF works, but it turns my floor plan "blotchy" and shades the walls different shades of grey in random sections. It doesn't look presentable.
Do I need to copy my document and delete the unwanted layers in order to publish the selected layers? Seems like a long way round to achieve what I need to do...... TIA

Thanks, Charlie.

That would work great (and thanks for that tip) if I were working with wall elevations, but I'm working with floor plans with sizes of the openings shown on the plan. After you mentioned "cutout", I thought, maybe I can do a perimeter line the length of the opening and give it a negative depth. Voila! It works and the negative area subtracts from the gross area! I'm happy!
