#143 closed defect (wontfix)

Greek Unicode in Bookmarks

Reported by: batchheizer Owned by: eros2
Priority: Feedback Pending Milestone: 1.4.0
Component: Plugin: PDF Version:
Keywords: Cc:


If a PDF-file contains a bookmark with Greek (and perhaps the same with other special-character-Languages) Unicode-characters, the characters cannot be displayed by Lucide. Only "Häuschen" appear.

With AR5 everything looks fine.

The 1.21 behavior is restored in r371.

What about the original problem, it goes down to the fact that the index list is drawn by PM (which uses the 8-bit code page according to the system setup) while the PDF itself is drawn with Freetype which fully supports Unicode.

PM has experimental Unicode support as well (we may switch PM to Unicode mode and supply it with Unicode strings) but it's not very easy to switch the current Lucide to this approach (and has some limitations in the implementation IIRC). Porting the Lucide UI to Qt4 seems to me as a more promising solution if we want Unicode everywhere in the UI. Anyway, this all is for later.

If you really need Greek, you may try to switch OS/2 to the code page that has Greek symbols and make sure your desktop font has Greek symbols as well.

Check for QPDFview: Normal Greek is fine. Polytonisch makes problems. See Ticket 141.
