Description Guillaume Desmottes 2006-05-29 07:30:12 UTC
Transfering this bug from GNOME Bugzilla: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=338942 To reproduce: - Open this file: http://cass.no-ip.com/~cassidy/files/brol/test.pdf - Copy the first line - Paste it in gedit The text pasted is: Bugs : ´ ` c ` ea¸e (The selection is badly displayed, see bug 338940). I use evine 0.5.2 with poppler 0.5.1 (Ubuntu Dapper). The pdf was created from http://cass.no-ip.com/~cassidy/files/brol/test.tex. I'm not sure if this bug is a dup of bug 2981. If it is, feel free to close it.

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=435829 It seems like it's the same problem, this time with Turkish text. I'm copying attachments from that bug over here.

Description from GNOME bugzilla: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=435829 I've got a PDF file which contains embedded fonts, and I can view this file perfectly. The file contains Turkish characters such as öçşığüÖÇŞİĞÜ. But when I try to select some text, these characters are displayed as squares. Steps to reproduce: Create a PDF file which contains one or more of these characters: "öçşığüÖÇŞİĞÜ", open it and try selecting this text.

My guess is that it's a problem of evince rather than of poppler. Since epdfview and evince both use glib and poppler, epdfview has no problem at all with text-selection-rendering for non-ascii characters.
