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: files with more than one dot in the filename are not displayed in
57         the Open File dialog. This is not a Lucide problem, but a problem
58         of the standard Open File dialog.
59          ( http://svn.netlabs.org/lucide/ticket/86#comment:1 )

61PDF plugin: text selection in multicolumn documents may work incorrectly
62            and Lucide may even crash. It's a problem of poppler PDF rendering
63            library.
64             ( http://svn.netlabs.org/lucide/ticket/98 )
