    Copying cyrillic text from a PDF

    Hello,
    When I try to copy cyrillic text from a PDF (it's not an image but actual letters) I get the English letters from the keyboard that correspond to the cyrillic letters. I tried this:

    Automatic Cyrillic Converter

    but it doesn't convert them properly. Anyone know a way to copy cyrillic from a pdf?

    Thank you,

    Scott

    One way is to use OCR application which recognizes pages of PDF document.
    I'd be grateful if you pointed out my mistakes.

    Try to switch your keyboard to Russian layout BEFORE copying the text (pressing Ctrl+C) in Acrobat Reader.

    Tried it but doesn't work. It's a Windows XP SP3 box.

    Thank you,

    Scott
