Hi, thanks for your feedback! we just want to collect some detailed feedback for what exactly is annoying/not working for you? You can still select character by character even if the initial selection is whole word, check this out: http://feedback.xodo.com/knowledgebase/articles/927858-text-selection-highlight! Any feedback is highly appreciated! Thanks!Ryan Daughtry commented
If this is the intended behavior, it is not working with Edit Mode, Highlight ool activated.
If I attempt to highlight just a single character, it will highlight the entire "word". No amount of attempting to go back and perform the trick shown in your link will correct that.
It might be worth noting that this document is a very large chart of symbols using embedded fonts, arranged in a grid 75x90 per page. Each row in the grid is stored in the PDF as a word, typically in side a Tj, with character spacing set such that the characters in the word are broken up and properly placed in the grid. the grid lines themselves are simple lines in the PDF. Most of this should not matter, I assume Xodo is treating the full text inside the Tj as a 'word' and thus it is highlighting that entire line, even when we try to highlight just one character. Emphasis: This is in Edit mode, with the Highlight tool active.Ryan Daughtry shared this idea ·
