43:: Known problems/limitations ::
44
45General: even/odd printing unavailable for postscript printing.
46          ( http://svn.netlabs.org/lucide/ticket/87#comment:4 )
47
48General: currently, Lucide determines the document type by extension, so
49         files without extensions are not supported yet.
50          ( http://svn.netlabs.org/lucide/ticket/43 )
51
52General: files with more than one dot in the filename are not displayed in
53         the Open File dialog. This is not a Lucide problem, but a problem
54         of the standard Open File dialog.
55          ( http://svn.netlabs.org/lucide/ticket/86#comment:1 )
56
57PDF plugin: text selection in multicolumn documents may work incorrectly
58            and Lucide may even crash. It's a problem of poppler PDF rendering
59            library.
60             ( http://svn.netlabs.org/lucide/ticket/98 )
