It renders as a blank page in QPDFView with the latest Poppler also. It appears to be a regression in Poppler. I tried the 1.41 beta 5 with the same results.

Greg did you test with your thread changed poppler? not the most recent one. The one you built interim. Just to be sure it's not this change.

I tried it with the patched popple66.dll and it renders slowly but correctly.

I will update poppler one more time to the last possible version. Which is 0.61. Later versions removed qt4 backend. So not an option for now.

Hopefully, that will solve the problem. It appears the pages that fail to render are images. The file linked to this ticket doesn't have any fonts. Thanks

Just thinking out loud. Is it possible one of the image format libs didn't get compiled in?

We lost the JPXDecoder, because they have the internal one marked as depreciated and it needs to be enabled with a switch. I build 0.59 with this switch as of now. lets see then.

I got the new 0.59.0. It works with the sample pdf in this ticket and also fixed a pdf I have which had the same problem.

fixed with latest poppler from exp repo. Btw please let me know when you plan to create the GA. So I can move poppler some days in advance to rel repo.
