Copying code text from PDFs

Postby SoleWriter on Tue Apr 24, 2018 7:25 am

Hello all,

I've been sifting through and found similar posts, but none that quite meet my exact issue.

I have used the <pre> tag in Flare to format code snippets. I am outputting to both PDF and HTML and want to be able to copy the text, preserve the formatting, and paste it into my browser-based data tool. When I copy and paste from HTML output, this works fine. When I copy and paste from PDF, the formatting is not preserved. Is there a way to resolve this in Flare?

Many thanks for your help!
