Hi all,
I believe you are experiencing the same problem I reported a while back. The issue is really with xpdf or the original postscript depending on how you look at it.
In my case at least, the spaces where encoded as null characters (check the ps code) which is handles perfectly with Adobe tools. My patch was to fall back to a default width for laying this out correctly, but to solve your problem the null character must also be replaced by a space for clipboard use.
You may try contacting Derek (mr Xpdf) about this, but he tends to be slow in responding, which was why I produced a good enough patch myself and sent it to this list instead.
Then again, you may have a different problem completely...
   Good luck / Jonas

the problem is that swftools has a bug that kills a feature i need: i want to copy/paste text from converted pdfs and swftools converts the text wrong in some cases, so the copied text doesn't have spaces any more (but the swf is displayed correctly).
Scribd use swftools for conversion and I think it is probably the best tool in the market for this. In fact they like it so much, Dr. Kramm will be with them in October.
