    Posted: 21 Jul 2017 at 1:51pm

I'm having an issue copy/pasting or converting a PDF to DOC or TXT..

I have this PDF file  I have uploaded it here  on    and on ;

The file is 2MB in size.

Courier New supports Hebrew characters e.g. \u05D0  (hebrew letter aleph). So I can use the Courier New font in notepad, to show hebrew.

If I copy/paste the hebrew in that PDF, into notepad, then I get funny or different characters

I am familiar with C#

I wonder if I can somehow open the PDF in C#, determine what Font is used, what encoding is used, and change the encoding to UTF-8..

I don't really just want it in notepad.. I want a PDF file with all that or similar formatting that is in that PDF, but with a font / encoding that I can copy/paste into notepad.

I wonder if anybody here has any ideas about how to go about that?
