I’m not completely sure if it’s the case with all RTL Languages, but the only Reader that is able to correctly Select the RTL text (Persian/Farsi) is Foxit Reader (on the right):
but after Copying it misses a lot of characters, for example:
- Half-Space Character (Ctrl+Shift+2):
is falsely copied as:
- Guillemets & Parentheses:
«» & ()
are copied in the wrong direction as:
»« & )(
ـَ , ـُ , ـِ , ـْ , ـّ , ـً , ـٌ , ـٍ ,
are completely misrepresented or copied as broken characters:
So far no Reader Supports this I’ve Tried Xodo (UWP), Adobe Reader and etc.
Does it have anything to do with the implementation of PDF format? since there no problem copying RTL from Web or Word Processors.
