I am currently facing the issue that an Elsevier-provided pdf of a publication of mine is not correctly rendered in Okular if text hinting is enabled (cf attachment). The corresponding pdf can be retrieved from http://authors.elsevier.com/a/1RQJJ1LkSZq5VP until September, 12 (afterwards, it will unfortunately be hidden behind a paywall). Further testing with qpdfview and poppler_qt5viewer unveil that it seems to be related to the text hinting done in the Splash backend, since rendering without text hinting, as well as the Arthur backend, give reasonably scaled integral signs and parentheses. Evince and the used cairo backend do not seem to have this issue. All tests have been performed with latest release 0.35.
