Hmm, i just copied "Acorsa Artichoke Heart - Quarter, Water, Can" from a
catalog pdf, so _at_all_ depends on something -- I couldn't copy text
from scanned documents, but that's to be expected.

Here's some copied text.
When connecting a DataMan directly to an Ethernet port on a PC, both the
PC and the
DataMan must be configured for the same subnet. This can be done
Link Local Addressing or you can manually configure your reader and your PC.

and a table (heading is screwed up but the data columns look ok):
This also looks like it may be dependent on how the pdf was created as
when I tried with a different table it wouldn't pick up all the columns
cleanly. But I don't have acroreader so I couldn't compare. And when I
last worked from the 4060 EDI pdf specs some ten years ago that copying
most everything was a problem even in acroread -- again, a creation
dependent issue I suspect.

I almost never actually print these -- perhaps a page or two for notes
or reference -- so I haven't hit this issue.

I see a thumbnails side panel and index I can hide, but no TOC.

As I don't have acroread, I find the 100% of the time evince suits my needs.
