Can't select text on Adobe Acrobat after converting epub to PDF

Hi, I noticed that after I convert my epub file to PDF with Calibre, I can't select any text on Adobe Acrobat. I can select text on other readers but not on Acrobat on iOS. Selecting text on the same file works on Desktop though, so I think this could be an app issue. Is there anything I can to do fix this?

Not really, pdf output in calibre uses a feature call unicode cmaps which was added to the pdf standard over a decade ago, but sadly a few apps still dont support it.

Interesting, but still, I believe that I could select text as usual before the new Adobe Acrobat update. I reported the problem to Adobe and they are handling it. If anyone else has this experience, either wait for them to fix it or also you can highlight text using comments.
