Evince-3.18.0-1 cannot select text in any PDF document
Last modified: 2015-12-15 11:49:14 EST
Description of problem:
Unable to properly (or correctly) select desired text content (i.e., words, sentences, paragraphs, etc.) by dragging the mouse pointer on any PDF type document opened by Evince.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Evince Document viewer application.
2. Open any PDF type document.
3. Using the mouse -- click any section of the PDF document and drag to select the specific text content.
Only a portion of the text is selected -- even before the mouse button is released.
All of the specific text content should be selected when the mouse button is released.
I first noticed this problem just after upgrading Fedora from FC22 to FC23.
[root@mypc ~]# lsb_release -a

This looks like the problem from the #1287402.
