      That would only be 112 copies and pastes for one of my documents. Just a little easier to 'Save As' 'Text'. Besides,
      this thread was about pdf to text exporting that retained column information. Most PDF tools can actually save text, but
      most of them don't do it very well. A-PDF would be perfect, except for its glaring text error of spelling out the word
      'minus' instead of producing a '-'. Their feedback is that they don't have an earlier version, and they don't have an
      update. In other words minusminus they aren't going to fix it any time soon.



      Regards,

      John
