Poppler version 0.22.0.
Mac OS X and Ubuntu.
There are some text boxes in the document, which when run through pdftoppm get turned into solid black boxes. Not all of the text boxes do this, only some of them.
Unfortunately, our documents are too sensitive to put on a public forum.
I can send it to a developer in an e-mail, however.
Thank you so much for your help.
I'm interested in the file
Ok, so it's one of the files that improves with the Thin line mode support Thomas did.
Thomas are you reading this? I guess I convinced you not to add support for that to pdftoppm, but unless we can make the perfect choice all the time i guess we'll have to add that option.
No problem, Albert. It's quite easy to add an option to pdftoppm. Any suggestions for the name of such an option? -thinlinemode is too long in my opinion, but I don't have any other good idea.
-thinlinemode works i guess

introduce the option thinlinemode for pdftoppm
Cory, unfortunately your pdf file is one of those that "we can't decided how to render right", since there's basically various ways to render a 1pixel line when zoomed out a lot, so we have this thin line mode thing that let's the user choose between various ways to render it. It is unfortunate we can't do that automagically, but that's how it is.
Hi Guys, I definitely understand. I'll play around with the options and hopefully find something that works for me, or at least a best practice when issues come up. Thanks!
