51:: Known problems/limitations ::
52
53General: even/odd printing unavailable for postscript printing.
54          ( http://svn.netlabs.org/lucide/ticket/87#comment:4 )
55
56General: currently, Lucide determines the document type by extension, so
57         files without extensions are not supported yet.
58          ( http://svn.netlabs.org/lucide/ticket/43 )
59
60General: files with more than one dot in the filename are not displayed in
61         the Open File dialog. This is not a Lucide problem, but a problem
62         of the standard Open File dialog.
63          ( http://svn.netlabs.org/lucide/ticket/86#comment:1 )
64
65PDF plugin: text selection in multicolumn documents may work incorrectly
66            and Lucide may even crash. It's a problem of poppler PDF rendering
67            library.
68             ( http://svn.netlabs.org/lucide/ticket/98 )
