Text formatting is lost when importing

When I copy text from a pdf book that I want to import and then paste it into the import window all the formatting is lost
(no indentations, incorrect line breaks). One word simply follows the next in one big jumble. Not such a big problem for articles but I just cant read a book like this.

Please tell me there is a work around.

Thank you

Not certain it will help, but you could try using Calibre to convert the file to .txt and then importing to lingq.

Thanks, that worked. Well, not converting to text. Text output was unreadable, I ended up converting to HTMLZ.

Glad something worked, I’ll have to remember about the HTMLZ option!
