RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Fixed In Version: poppler-0.26.5-14.el7
Doc Type: Release Note
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.
