Description Marius Tolzmann 2012-08-01 12:55:21 UTC
Created attachment 65030 [details]
first page printed as pdf in evince

After applying fixes from latest git I still have a problematic document which is missing characters when printed as pdf or on paper using evince.

problematic document can be downloaded here:

First page printed with evince as PDF is attached and misses "ff" in the first heading.

I currently use:
cairo latest git 5dd0f2eb9   (1.12.2 + 127 commits)
pixman latest git g1dcca0f  (0.27.x)
poppler 0.20.2
evince 3.5.4

I don't know if this is still cairo related or if I just miss something else. All fonts are embedded. So please try to reproduce and let me know what else I can provide. 

Downgrading to cairo 1.10 did not seem to fix the issue this time.

best, marius..
