PDF to HTML jumbled text

Hi All,

I was trying to convert a pdf to html using adobe but it came through jumbled with odd letters. No real text so to speak.

Does this mean the pdf is somehow encrypted?

Perhaps the PDF is just scanned images? You may need to OCR it.

The way to check is to open with Acrobat/Adobe Reader etc. and do a text search. If you can't find any text, then there isn't any to export.
