Description Guillaume Desmottes 2006-05-29 07:25:55 UTC
Transfering this bug from GNOME Bugzilla:

To reproduce:
- Open this file: http://cass.no-ip.com/~cassidy/files/brol/test.pdf
- Select the first line

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 can confirm this with Thai text. Thai language has above-level vowels, which
are similar to accent mark in term of display.

Some of these vowels are missing when selected. This doesn't happened with
Adobe Reader 7.0 on the same Linux machine.

This bug is maybe related to bug 7063 and bug 7065.
Comment 2 Enver ALTIN 2007-05-09 14:28:54 UTC
Apparently another duplicate, in the GNOME bugzilla: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=435829

Apparently the same problem, with Turkish text.
