This bug has been reported in evince at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=564153 and https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/evince/+bug/265033 but it is believed this is a poppler bug.
Steps to Produce:
- Use some of the forms from irs.gov, such as the 2008 f1040.pdf that is attached.
- Enter data in any field.
- Press return.
Actual Results: Data is there until you press return, then it disappears. If you click on field again, you see the data again until you hit return.
Expected Results: Data should stay even when field isn't selected.
It's believed this is a poppler bug and not evince, because the following error appears on stdout just after return is hit: Error: Unknown font in field's DA string
which appears to come from poppler/poppler/Annot.cc
