pdf for testing
Description of problem:
I have a pdf of a scanned/OCRed text (produced via pdfsandwich through tesseract). When I open the pdf with evince and select a text section, I cannot see the letters. When I do the same with okular, I can still see the letters.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open the attached odf file with evince
2. select text
Actual results: cannot see the letters that are selected
Expected results: can see the letters
I do not think this is an issue of pdfsandwich - but here is a link to this mechanism. http://www.tobias-elze.de/pdfsandwich/

screenshot of effect
sorry, the other file is the pdf
this is an issue in the PDF file. It contains a font which doesn't have any usable glyphs (they named it GlyphLessFont). It has only .notdef and .null replacements (the squares). Evince uses the .notdef glyph if there is no glyph for the character. The reason that Okular highlight the text is because it does it in the image not as a regular text as evince does.
