disappearing spaces

I am a trial user of Scrivener. When I copy and paste text from PDF documents that I have put into the binder, the spaces between words disappear. Any idea what’s wrong?

This unfortunately is an issue with the PDF tool Scrivener currently uses. To get around it, you can use the Documents > Open > in External Editor command (F5) to open the imported PDF in your default PDF reader and copy the text from there. When viewing the PDF in Scrivener, you’ll also see an icon button in the right of the editor footer to open the PDF in the external application.
