Description Dimitrios Symeonidis 2008-10-10 05:56:51 UTC
the file is the New York State voter registration form
on the second page there's a field where you select your county
this field works well when opened in windows with adobe reader, but not in linux: not with evince or xpdf, not even with acroread for linux

the report was initially filed under ubuntu's launchpad:

Next time please give me all the info, specifically the link to the pdf
Comment 2 Dimitrios Symeonidis 2008-10-10 09:20:33 UTC
i tried to attach it, but it's >1MB, so it was dropped, but without any message, so i thought it was attached...

Comment 5 madbiologist 2012-12-09 15:58:44 UTC
Still occurring with libpoppler28 0.20.4-0ubuntu1 and libcairo2 1.12.2-1ubuntu2.1
Comment 6 gijs.hillenius@gmail.com 2012-12-17 11:26:59 UTC
here is a similar form, with a drop-down list (in Dutch) 


it is the clickable box under 'Geld terug bij vertraging' 

it should give, I guess, a list of train stations, but none are visible nor selectable. Maybe it will help chase the bug..

The first document (New York State voter registration form) is working with poppler 0.24.5-2ubuntu4.  As well as a very small horizontal scrollbar under the County field, to the right of the field there is also what is either an even smaller vertical scrollbar or up and down arrows which work.

The second document from comment #6 also works with poppler 0.24.5-2ubuntu4, albeit with visual bug.  The "Gegevens over uw reis/Your journey" fields can now be dropped down into a selectable list of train stations by clicking on the right hand end of the field.  No down arrow is visible, but there is a faint separator bar near the end of the field.  It might be advisable to file a new bug report for the remaining visual issue.
