Created attachment 126461 A sample PDF unreadable via poppler (a page from Archive.org)
Archive.org generates PDFs which have layers. Some are not seen in Okular. I attach a PDF you cannot read in Okular, but it looks fine in any browser plugin or other PDF viewer. Here is the same sample PDF in case the attachment is not ok: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/58231097/189.pdf
Steps to Reproduce:
- Download the PDF: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/58231097/189.pdf
- Open it in Okular
- Open it in anything else reading PDFs
I cannot read the text layer of the PDF in Okular
The text layer should be readable, like in any other PDF viewer.
The bug report was initially posted on KDE Bugzilla, and the following reply was recieved:
Yuri Chornoivan 2016-09-11 11:04:35 UTC Hi,
This looks like a bug in poppler (library for handling PDF). At least, all poppler-based PDF-viewers (qpdfviewer, Evince) do not render it correctly. muPDF shows it as it should.
Please file a bug report against poppler here
Thanks in advance for your work.
I confirm that Inkscape cannot render the layer via poppler, either.
