comment Cannot copy text from PDF generated with Google Docs?
What PDF application are you copying it from (Adobe Reader, Chrome's PDF viewer, etc)? Please add all those things to the question. I just made a French Google Apps document with some accented characters and exported it to PDF. The PDF was opened in Adobe Reader and I copied and pasted it into Word 2010. The text appears normally. Also, if you can share the PDF with us, we can perhaps test it.

Also, what OS are you using, where are you pasting to?

It's not clear from your question what the document source is. Is it a Google Apps document that has been saved in PDF format, or a PDF generated from another source that was uploaded to Google Drive?

comment Is Facebook not presenting all posts?
Try out QSearch on facebook (if you're cool with its Privacy Policy -- I don't care for it saying it needs your email, etc. without saying why).

comment How can I make Google Search default for all words with “allintext:”?
I'd add that you should not use "google.com" as a keyword when you add this search, as it appears to add it, but does not.

comment Better way to search the Facebook activity log / timeline?
Like so many Apps on Facebook, QSearch (if you choose to allow use it) requires you grant it access to your confidential information. This includes: your email address and your likes. Neither of these is needed to search your wall, so it's clear you have to "pay" for this service. QSearch doesn't say what it uses these things for, despite stating in their privacy policy "Before or at the time of collecting personal information, we will identify the purposes for which information is being collected."

comment Better way to search the Facebook activity log / timeline?
@phwd Is saying it can't be done really a good way to answer on SE? "Currently" means nothing in internet time and seems the answer is not constructive (apart from using the END button, the only reason I didn't down-vote it).

comment How do you share a Facebook photo album with people that don't want to register for Facebook?
This isn't working for me anymore. I tried with incognito and the link sends me to a generic signup page. Can anyone confirm this still works?

comment Why don't I see posts from my family members in my stream?
Facebook has an Acquaintances group, and anyone in that group is limited in the feed. Google+ has the same default circle, but 1) I don't know if your family is in it (too) and 2) I don't know if it works the same way as Facebook.

comment Easiest way to transfer Google data between accounts
Re: Google Documents, Downloading to a PC changes the format, which is not fun. Also, the web interface only allows one to "Move" or "Add" (as opposed to "Copy"). The only way to duplicate is one file at a time. "Add" is somewhat deceiving, in that it hard-links to the original file, without displacing the original hard-link.
