Having a difficult problem. Am copying text from a PDF, which is three words, all on one line, and am pasting it into After Effects, and the three words appear stacked! One on top of two on top the third.
Like this:
Instead of:
As if I hit the return key after every word to create a stack.
I can can unstack them, (with the delete key) but when I go to copy something else...again, the stack formation.
What to do!!??

To do this, you may have to paste the PDF test into a text editing application, then copy and paste from that new document...

...assuming, of course, that the text formatting characters in the PDF aren't pasted into the text editor, too.
