Font rendering issue unrelated to substituted fonts
Hey guys, so we noticed something that might be a poppler (cairo) issue in https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/evince/issues/1221
See "st udents" and "n ew" in Evince (left) vs Chromium (right, students and new, respectively):
Using pdftocairo, this happens:
So, while Evince's font smoothing exacerbates the problem, it doesn't seem to be the root cause of it. The fonts in this PDF aren't substituted but embedded.
Is this fixable?
(Running Ubuntu 19.04, GNOME 3.32.1, Evince 3.32.0)
