Instead of the actual document text, Poppler renders this as a single page that says:
"To view the full contents of this document, you need a later version of the PDF viewer. You can upgrade to the latest version of Adobe Reader from www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html For further support, go to www.adobe.com/support/products/acrreader.html"
I think Poppler can do better.
Steps to reproduce:
- Open http://undergradresearch.fsu.edu/Gfx/summer_award.pdf with Evince
Actual results: Evince displays some lame error message embedded in the PDF.
Expected results: Evince should display a "best effort" rendering of the actual text I want to read.
Does this happen every time? Yes.
Other information: This seemed similar to some other reported bugs in Evince, but in all the ones I looked at, highlighting the text made it visible. In this case, highlighting does nothing.
