# Make PDF files searchable and copyable

• The cmap package is intended to make the PDF files generated by pdflatex "searchable and copyable" in acrobat reader and other compliant PDF viewers.

• Just put the line \usepackage{cmap} at the beginning of your preamble, and it will pre-load the needed CMap translations for the fonts used in the document, provided that there exists the file `<encoding>.cmap` for the font encoding.
