Text box becomes corrupted after editing

Post by Levente » Wed Jun 12, 2019 8:11 am

I have a document edited by FlexiPdf 2017 earlier. Now I purchased an installed Flexi Pdf 2019 (v2.0.2) and as I start to edit a textbox the content of it becomes a "garbage".

Quite difficult to reproduce, it occurs randomly. I encounter this kind of error when editing bold and justified text.

Similar weird behaviour could be reproduced, that might have the same root:
1: Open Armytek_Wizard_Pro-001.pdf in FlexiPDF 2019
2: There is a "(c) Armyteklampa.hu" text box in the bottom right hand corner
3: Zoom the document to 150% and click in the text box to start editing. The text in the text box changes, becames kind of corrupted similar to described above.

Hi, I was able to reproduce the issue you described.
However this file has problems. All the bolds are generated by overlapping 3 versions of the regular font weight (see attached image from adobe reader)
This issue also happens when trying to edit it in adobe acrobat.
This file was generated in Corel Draw, a program that doesn't use the best practices when printing or generating PDFs.

Thank you for investigating the case. I'll need to check this further as I'm not sure if this problem is totally out of scope of FlexiPDF 2019.

Third is how to reproduce the bug:
- start with a blank document
- create new text box with Arial narrow font
- type Armytek
- change font to bold

Letter t becomes "tripled".

Hi, the problem doesn't happen to me.
When I choose arial I don't have the same options as you (narrow 0, 1 and 2).
