Why in the world does Adobe Acrobat's OCR change the punctuation spacing?!? 👿

French requires a space before : ; ? and ! but Acrobat's OCR, set to French, removes these from the original.

And it doesn't mess up the spacing 100% of the time, so can't do one "replace all" move.

The irony is that the medieval French words are not corrected to modern French (thankfully).
