Description frank_markesteijn 2008-08-19 16:25:12 UTC
The Sun PDF Import extension Beta 0.3.1 Solaris x86 on ooo3.0 Beta 2 Build BEB300_m3 sometimes places text wrongly, in the attached file Leers.text.pdf on every page you find a map with blue dots and blue text strings, plus other things, the blue text strings should appear on the lower right of every blue dot, also they should appear to have a white outline, the outline shows up as black filled text, but that is a different bug, instead the blue text strings, together with their white outlines, that appear as black filled text, appear to be concatenated into a single text string, sometimes placed near the first blue dot sometimes somewhere else entirely. The black text on the map is always placed correctly near the black dots, the pdf code for both blue and black texts is nearly identical exept that for scaling the black text the current transformation matrix is used, for scaling the blue text the font matrix is used. to clarify matters i have attached a file code_examples.txt containg pieces of code from the pdf file and their respective translation from the odf file, the odf code can be viewed by saving Leers.text.pdf as an openoffice drawing (.odg) and then unzip that file from a terminal: "unzip Leers.text.odg" the file contents.xml contains (most of) the odf code for the document. The attached file Leers.txt.pdf is a plain ascii file, so you can open it in any text editor.

I checked with "Ooo-dev 3.0.0 Beta Multilingual version German UI WIN XP: [OOO300m2 (Build9343)]" and PDF Import Beta 0.3.1. I can confirm the reported problems. I did not search for all problems, but I marked some in an own import, pls. see attached "Leers.text.importwithcomments.odg" with comments.
