[PATCH] poppler_page_get_text fails for right to left directioned pages
Submitted by alex

Created attachment 68558 patch to make poppler_page_get_text return the whole page text
the failure is a result of a change that requires right to left text selection for right to left pages.
without dealing with this idea, this patch will only get the whole text of the page (as an user might also think, since no limits may be given), and isn't trying to define a rectangle for the whole page content, as the current implementation.
performance would neccessarily increase, too.
this patch is important since the glib interface it the only endpoint for python programs to access poppler.
best regards, alex
