BUG: Copy / Paste text in PDF letters with accents paste as a space on Mac Big Sur
The copy paste function doesn't work with words that contain letters with accents on my Mac running Big Sur. Letters with accents paste as a space. It doesn't matter where I paste the text. The result is the same. This is a real problem for people using languages with a lot of accents. I'm able to open the same PDF using Preview and copy/paste the same text and see all the letters.
I opened another PDF that was created years ago with accented letters. The copy/paste worked in my browser and in Preview. I had the same problem when copying/pasting using the Acrobat Reader on Big Sur.
The version I have installed includes support for Intel based Mac computers which I assume is the problem. Hopefully an Apple Silicone version of the reader will be available soon.

I just installed the update. The accented characters copy/paste as expected.
