Re: Tricky SVG document resulting from PDF conversion
thank you for the explanation.
I will submit the problem to PDFTron, now i am sure it's something
they ought to fix in their program, unless this happens only with the
- Regarding text selection we are simply converting information that is
available in PDF documents. Adobe implemented robust text selection
in Acrobat Reader, however the same does not apply to their SVG
viewer. The ideal solution would be to make ASV as robust as the
Acrobat Reader is for PDF files. Unfortunately, with Adobe dropping
support for ASV & SVG, it seems that this will never happen. On our
side, we will try to tweak the SVG output to better match the
expected behavior in the current version of ASV.
Regarding the missing random characters, this is only a limitation in
the demo version of PDF2SVG and it does not occur in the production
version (http://www.pdftron.com/pdf2svg/faq.html#demo1). If you would
like you can send your test files to 'support at pdftron.com' and we
will gladly convert the files to SVG using the production version.

seems to loose the textual information by combining letters randomly.
I am currently evaluating this product and i find it extremely good
otherwise, so i really hope you can fix this problem before taking
