Description of problem:
When I resize/maximize the program window and zoom in the page is cropped on the right side at the same width as the program window was upon starting the program.
Works the same on all levels of zooming.
Also using "fit width" will only zoom the page to the original window width.
Using KDE 3.4.2-0.fc3.2
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. execute xpdf <filename.pdf>
2. enlarge/maximize program window
3. zoom in using the drop down list
Actual Results: the page is cropped at the original width of the program window
Expected Results: the page should have been displayed across the whole window
Same happens here on FC4. I think this happens after last security update
xpdf-3.01-0.FC4.1 and its pretty reproducable.
yes, it's reproducable in new xpdf-3.01.
OK, so what is next? This makes xpdf unusable.
i'm still investigating why it's broken in 3.01 release. I hope to get more
infos from the xpdf author how to fix this problem. Please be patient
Yes. I'm using FC4, and the any version newer than 3.00-19 will have this
It apparently only happens with certain window managers: KDE; and not with
others: fvwm2, GHOME/Metacity.
You are right, so count enlightenment dr16 to these that do NOT work. IceWM to
these that xpdf is OK.
I noticed that wmanager that works centers the pdf window content when resized.
This is not the case for these that do not work.
OK, so with IceWM I can reproduce both behaviours. First thing that makes
difference is wherether you have set showing window content while resizing
(opaque resize). If it is disabled, then this xpdf croping does not apears at
all. If it is not set, then it happens only under some conditions, which are
pretty hard to describe.
This problem is now fixed in xpdf-3.01-0.FC3.2 or newer. It will be available
for FC3 update next week. Many Thanks for your report.
How about the fix for FC4? There xpdf has same problem.
yes, i will do update for FC4 too.
