Copy only one column of PDF text

I work frequently with PDFs that include in a singe page two pages of a book. In Acrobat Reader I can select text from just one book page in order to copy it to the clipboard. However, in DT when I attempt to select text, it selects the rows on both pages in the single PDF page. Any way to fix this?


Hold down the Option key and “draw” a box enclosing one page. That will select the text of that page. Likewise, to select a specific paragraph or sentence, just enclose it in a “box” while holding down the Option key.
