"Please describe the problem: Some forms have some sort of code in them that affects how they format the input. (Sorry, don't know enough about the PDF spec to be more specific). Acrobat Reader properly handles this code. Evince does not.
An example form would be: http://www.dor.state.nc.us/downloads/fillin/D400_webfill.pdf
For each spot where a dollar amount is expected, Acrobat will automatically add '.00' to the dollar amount you enter. Evince does not.
Steps to reproduce:
- Download http://www.dor.state.nc.us/downloads/fillin/D400_webfill.pdf
- Do your taxes
- Print them out
- Mail them
Actual results: The department of revenue misparses the evince-produced output, calculating your taxes in an entirely different and incorrect manner.
Expected results: Woo, refund!
Does this happen every time? Yes"
The problem is not filling the form, but saving it. To reproduce it: 1.- Fill some form fileds 2.- Save it 3.- Open the saved file
