Question PDF copy & paste


I'm trying to copy and paste from PDF's. The pdf readers (xpdf, ghostview etc.) don't have a copy and paste option. I installed acrobat, which does allow copy & paste, but the pasted text is minus CR/LF, and fullstops and dashes seem to magically disappear. This is a pain 'cause I'm trying to copy large scripts. Can anyone suggest a fix or workaround?
Running RedHat 7.3 and use these from KDE.

Have you tried to use the "native" linux copy & paste: mark the text up you want to copy with the left mouse button, go to your texteditor and paste it by pressing the middle mouse button...
