Doc Text:
*Poppler* no longer renders certain characters incorrectly Previously, the *Poppler* library did not map correctly to character code. As a consequence, *Poppler* showed the `fi` string instead of showing the correct glyph, or nothing, if the font did not contain necessary glyphs. With this update, the characters previously replaced with the `fi` string are shown correctly.

Description Marek Kašík 2016-01-14 14:58:41 UTC
Description of problem:
Some characters from PDFDocEncoding are shown as "fi" or are not shown at all when entered into editable forms. This is caused by a bug in poppler. This is now fixed upstream (see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=92597).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get the PDF from https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=756805#c1
2. Enter "šč" into a field
3. press enter

Actual results:
There is "fifi" shown in the field

Expected results:
There is "š " shown in the field

Additional info:
I should mention that the fact that we don't expect "šč" is caused by the fact that handling of characters not present in PDFDocEncoding is not specified for forms in PDF specification (see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1226260).

I reported the related bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1226260 .
I just tested the new version of poppler (poppler-0.26.5-16.el7) which is included in the latest rhel 7.3 beta and this bug is not fixed.
