Description Marek Kašík 2010-05-17 13:45:13 UTC
Description of problem:
In bug #591095 is described that user can select text in rotated document. This should not be possible with current evince. It is not tested whether the document is rotated when double-clicking in it.
It shouldn't also show cursor for text selection on rotated documents.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a PDF document in evince
2. Rotate the document (e.g. by Ctrl+Left)
3. Double click on a position where was a text before rotation (where text-selection cursor occurs)

Actual results:
Text is highlighted on non-rotated position

Expected results:
The text shouldn't be selectable and the cursor shouldn't change.
