Description christoph_egger 2020-01-15 08:57:42 UTC
Description:
I export a presentation as pdf. In the pdf when I copy the text from contents into clipboard the Whitespaces are removed.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open attached presentation in Impress.
2. Export presentation as pdf.
3. Open pdf.
4. Select text from contents and copy to clipboard.
5. Text in the clipboard has no whitespaces.

Actual Results:
When I paste the text from the clipboard somewhere whitespaces are removed.

Example:
In step 4 I select "The attributes of the 144000 (9 slides)"
After step 5 the clipboard contains "Theattributesofthe144000(9slides)"

Expected Results:
The whitespaces should be in the clipboard.

Example:
In step 4 I select "The attributes of the 144000 (9 slides)"

what PDF viewer do you use? 

I can't repro it on Windows in

and I use PDF-Xchange viewer there

so possibly it's mac only or problem with only some PDF viewer?
Comment 3 christoph_egger 2020-01-16 15:16:12 UTC
I can export the pdf in two ways:

1. File -> Export As -> Export Directly as PDF
2. File -> Print -> PDF -> Save PDF as

Both ways give the same result as reported.

PDF viewers I use:

- Preview App
- PDiff Express 2 App

I can reproduce this with both pdf viewers.

I found this issue with "PDiff Express 2" when I compared
the pdf produced with powerpoint with the pdf produced with Impress
because it showed me a diff I didn't expect.

The Preview App shows whitespaces but misses them when I copy to clipboard,
the "PDiff Express 2" does not show whitespaces.

It looks like the text-layer in the pdf has no whitespaces?

Comment 6 Roman Kuznetsov 2020-01-16 16:54:42 UTC
I tested PDF from macOS's LibreOffice on Linux machine with Okular PDF viewer. Text pasted from that PDF into document looks fine, it has all spaces.
I think it isn't a problem in LibreOffice, but it's a macOS PDF viewer's problem.

not a bug? Xisco, any opinions?

For me neither the LO or PowerPoint produced PDF has whitespace included when I copy from Preview

In Acrobat Reader both work

Although yes, your PDF from PowerPoint shows correctly. How did you produce it? I'm on 16.34

So at the face of it I would call this maybe not our bug

What do you mean? I don't understand.

I attached a screenshot (see attachment 157996 [details]) from PDF comparison with
"Pdiff Express 2" that shows the difference of
the produced PDF's from LO (= left side)
and from Powerpoint (= right side).
There you clearly see, the whitespaces are missing in the PDF from LO.

When "Pdiff Express 2" says both PDF's are equal then I am happy.

I created both PDF's via File -> Print -> Save PDF
(I rotated the PDF from LO in Preview before comparison due bug 130007)

For the second screenshot (see attachment 157997 [details]) I did it vice versa:
I rotated the PDF from Powerpoint before comparison to show that the rotation
operation in Preview does not touch the text layer in the PDF.

You can get "Pdiff Express 2" from the Apple Store for Mac.
The trial version allows to compare the first three pages which is enough for testing purpose of this issue.

Comment 16 christoph_egger 2020-02-19 08:51:10 UTC
In case you ask what is the relation of "pdiff express 2" to the clipboard (in relation to Comment 0):

Answer: The content of the clipboard matches with "pdiff express 2" saying what is in the text layout of the pdf.

Examples:

"pdiff express 2" says "Introduction (1 slide)" and I have "Introduction (1 slide)" in the clipboard.
"pdiff express 2" says "Introduc/on(1slide)" and I have "Introduc/on(1slide)" in the clipboard.
Comment 17 Oliver Grimm 2020-03-24 22:45:17 UTC
Since specifically the "ti" ligature in the word "introduction" is broken in the example this bug might be related to incorrect parsing of escape sequences in one of the programs or incorrect forwarding of escape sequenced text between them. 

How do the spaces in an export look like if you prefix all spaces in the original document with a dash "/"?

If you think that parsing of the PDF is incorrect how do you explain
that parsing of the PDF from Powerpoint is correct?

What data is necessary in the PDF export that *any* program
has a chance for correct parsing?

> How do the spaces in an export look like if you prefix all spaces in the

See attachment 158968 [details]
FYI: I made the requested modification in Powerpoint.

Comment 21 eisa01 2020-05-03 08:32:59 UTC
Ok,
first of all you can use Export -> Export as PDF to avoid the rotation bug.

However, that does not avoid the issue

I also did an export test from LO on Windows, and that resulting file also misses spaces when shown in macOS Preview on Mojave. As such, this is not a mac bug

However, in e.g., the Edge PDF viewer I'm able to copy paste the output just fine with spaces.

I guess this is a question whether LO produce valid PDF output or not, or if this is a bug in Preview? Second question is then if we should fix the output to be able to be read by Preview or not

(the now save as PDF in print dialog produce quite broken output when copy pasted due to the rotation, lots of extra spaces)

That sounds like you can reproduce bug 130007.

I attached a screenshot from "pdiff express 2" comparing your two pdf's
(see screenshot from attachment 160307 [details]).
It shows that both pdf's have *no* whitespaces in the text layer.

Question: Where does "Edge PDF viewer" get the whitespaces from when you copy the text?

When I do that from PowerPoint on Mac then the resulting PDF is correct.
Can you confirm that?

screenshot of "pdiff express 2" showing the diff between pdf from ppt 2008 (left side) and pdf from ppt 2019 (right side)

I recently bought MS Office 2019 for Mac.
I produced a pdf and compared it with my older MS Office 2008 version.

It is noticable that MS Office 2019 does also remove the whitespaces in the textlayer.
I don't know what is the case with MS Office 2013 and 2016 but I think
that explains why this is hard to reproduce for many people.

I restested with LO version

Version: 7.0.0.3
Build ID: 8061b3e9204bef6b321a21033174034a5e2ea88e
CPU threads: 8; OS: Mac OS X 10.14.6; UI render: default; VCL: osx
Locale: en-US (en_DE.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Calc: threaded

It still does remove the whitespaces in the textlayer
and it still produces "Introdu/on" instead of "Introduction".


MS Office 2008 produces "Introduction (1 slide)"
MS Office 2019 produces "Introduction(1slide)"
LO 7.0.0 produces "Introdu/on(1slide)"


The question that rises up:
What is the correct behavior according to PDF specification?

I figured out LO has the same issue with the word "Revelation":
It produces "Revela/on".

Expected Results:
The whitespaces should be in the clipboard and content unchanged.

Example:

Which PDF viewers do I use?
1. Preview App
2. PDiff Express 2
3. Adobe Acrobat Reader for Mac


When I create the PDF with Powerpoint 2008 for Mac and follow the steps to reproduce then I get "Introduction (1 slide)" into the clipboard with all three PDF viewers. This is the expected result.

When I create the PDF with Powerpoint 2019 for Mac and follow the steps to reproduce then I get "Introduction(1slide)" into the clipboard with Preview App and PDiff Express 2. With Acrobat Reader I get "Introduction (1 slide)" into the clipboard. The removal of the whitespace content is unexpected.

When I create the PDF with LO 7.1+ and follow the steps to reproduce
then I get "Introdu/on(1slide)" into the clipboard with Preview App and PDiff Express 2. With Adobe Acrobat Reader for Mac I get "Introduc/on (1 slide)" into the clipboard. This content change is unexpected.




In Comment 17 there is the question what happens with a slash prefix to each whitespace.

I created Attachment 159385 [details],  Attachment 166929 [details] and attachment 166930 [details] in response to that question.

The test results concerning the question in Comment 17 are these:

When I create the PDF with Powerpoint 2008 for Mac and follow the steps to reproduce then I get "Introduction/ (1/ slide)" into the clipboard with all three PDF viewers. This is the expected result.

When I create the PDF with Powerpoint 2019 for Mac and follow the steps to reproduce then I get "Introduction/(1/slide)" into the clipboard with Preview App and PDiff Express 2. With Adobe Acrobat I get "Introduction/ (1/ slide)" into the clipboard. The removal of the whitespace content is unexpected.

When I create the PDF with LO 7.1+ and follow the steps to reproduce
then I get "Introduc/on(1slide)" with Preview App and with "PDiff Express 2" into the clipboard. With Adobe Acrobat I get "Introduc/on/ (1/ slide)" into the clipboard. This content change is unexpected.

Tested with attachment 157160 [details] and Okular and I don't see the problem

Noone on windows can reproduce either.
This really is Mac OS X only.


I can still reproduce on

Comment 38 Denys Prokhorov 2021-08-01 10:04:45 UTC
When opening the PDF in the LibreOffice, PDF Expert 2.5.18, Crome 92.0.4515.107 the error is not reproduced.

I was able to reproduce the bug in OS X 11.0 (999.4) standard viewer when copying text missing spaces.
If you remove the numbering and go through all the steps again, the error disappears.

This is interesting discovery. I can confirm:

With the numbering I get:

Introduc/on(1slide)

Without the numbering I get:

Introduc/on (1 slide)

Indeed, the problem with the whitespaces disappears.

This problem with whitespaces is related to the numbering format.
The other problem with the 'ti' -> '/' change is unrelated to it.
