Does anyone know of a free software to make my life easier when typing up documents?

Hmm, dunno mate. I usually just use the select tool and select the text, then copy&paste it into my word processor. However, this doesn't work for PDFs that have been scanned/photo'd (which I don't think you'd be able to convert, anyway).

Is this a PDF on your Dropbox or Animosity docs? I could try and have a look if you're having trouble.

Ahh... then I foresee lots of manual copying on the horizon for you... ;)

I can type really quite quickly with a proper keyboard so we can always do a night of two laptops one for reading and one for typing lol
