Why is selecting/highlighting text here impossible?

Sun Apr 15, 2018 2:52 pm

Assume I visit (e..g with Chrome browser) the following page:

https://www.ghacks.net/2018/04/02/cloud ... t-1-1-1-1/

Now I print this page with one of the popular pdf printers into a pdf file.

Then I load this pdf afterwards into XChange Viewer and want to highllight some text (or mark it for copying).

But this is not possible.


Which CSS statement prevents the later selection of text?

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the email - This is because when printing from Chrome, the content is rasterized and so becomes an image, no actual text is in the document. You would need to use the Document --> OCR Pages feature.

If posting files to this forum, you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded.
Thank you.

Best regards
