[Bug 545176] Re: Cannot copy text from specific pdf in evince


Is the PDF format correct?
I have tried to open the PDF with Ubuntu-evince ,Ubuntu-okular and Mac-default PDF Reader and I have attached respective screenshots if you want to take a look at it. All ther reader gives different selection with none of them perfect.

** Attachment added: "Image contains selection in different PDF readers."
