Whenever I copy from a pdf to my word 2007 document I get a dotted box around my pasted material.

I have a picture of it - any ideas what this is? it will be a settings thing but have tried without success to remove it.

thanks

Perheps you could convert your pdf files to doc format directly.

Anyway, here is the latest deal - see photo of window popping up saying corrupted doc - its lying.

You can see the pasted text gotten from a pdf in the 'to' section of the invoice with a stupid dotted line around it which is inside a dotted line in the template invoice doc - this is really becoming a pain.

I think the only way is to convert them to Word/Text format or whatever copyable.

Try these converters:

or
