Description frank_markesteijn 2008-08-19 12:48:31 UTC
The Sun PDF Import extension Beta 0.3.1 Solaris x86 on ooo3.0 Beta 2 Build
BEB300_m3 appears to ignore the transformation matrix, when encountering an
image in a pdf file, in the attached file Leers.text.pdf, which is in plain
ascii, the background image is flipped upside down In the pdf file, in object 2,
on line 20 you will find the transformation "842 0 0 -595 0 595 cm" the next
line "/X Do" calls object 3, the actual image, in the objects dictionary on line
16 "/Resources << /XObject << /X 3 0 R >> >>" you can see that "/X" actually
revers to object 3, thus it appears that the transformation on line 20 is being
There are other things wrong when this file is imported
but those are different bugs.
The attached file Leers.txt.pdf is a plain ascii file, so you can open it in any
text editor.

Great to hera that the bug is fixed.

But I don't understand "Checked fix in DEV300m53 and OOO310m17.".

Were changes in the OOo code neccessary?

Do I have to update OOo AND the extension?

When will a new extension be released? What version number will it have?

I do no think that it is necessary to update OOo also.
Comment 12 norbert2 2009-09-07 08:12:48 UTC

Since OOo 3.1.1 has recently been released can we expect an updated pdf import
extension soon?

I either did not know, because I tested this as vacation substitute. So I
searched for PDF Extension and this is what I got:
