rdar://28350774 – Cannot Copy Text From PDF in Mail.app and Paste to Messages.app

· · 3 Comments

I filed a bug today about PDFs, Mail, and Messages:

Text copied from PDFs attached to mail messages cannot be pasted into Messages (both SMS and iMessage).

1. Open Mail.
2. Download & open PDF attached to email.
3. Select & copy text from PDF.
4. Try to paste text into new or existing Message (iMessage or SMS) — no paste prompt after tapping the text field.

After tapping the text field, a “paste” popup should appear.

Nothing happens after tapping the empty text field.

If you’re reading this and know someone who could push this forward, I’d be very grateful.

  1. When you import pdf from email to iBooks, then you can copy text and paste it wherever you want ;). The same issue can be observe with Gmail.

  2. Not a comfortable solution though.

  3. I have this issue also. cant copy from pdf in mail to maps and other apps.
