comment Cannot copy text from PDF generated with Google Docs?
@ALJIMohamed here's what I get when I paste the first line: (using Chrome's preview) ,QJpQLHXUeWXGHVHW'pYHORSSHPHQW (using Adobe PDF) 􀀬􀁑􀁊􀁰􀁑􀁌􀁈􀁘􀁕􀀃􀁥􀁗􀁘􀁇􀁈􀁖􀀃􀁈􀁗􀀃􀀧􀁰􀁙􀁈􀁏􀁒􀁓􀁓􀁈􀁐􀁈􀁑􀁗. The PDF properties (in Adobe) say your PDF was produced by the application "Documill Publishor 6.3.12 by Documill" -- I just generated a PDF with drive.google.com and got the same properties, however accented characters are OK. The problem in your document seems to be the embedded fonts with custom encoding. Can you try changing the font in Google?

comment Is there any way to have Gmail folders show total unread count (including subfolders)
@leora See my edit about "keeping them collapsed" (if you open the triangle to see subfolders, the bold disappears).

You might be remembering the feature when it was still in labs.

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."

@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).
