Wrong URL composition

Post by fk-fk » Sat Feb 04, 2017 9:08 pm

It looks like PDF-Xchange viewer doesn't always handle URLs in a string correctly. Please see the examples in the attached PDF.
(I'm NOT talking about URL's created with the link tool.)

It seems like PDF-XChange Viewer 2.5 (build 319.0) and PDF-XChange Editor V6 (build 319.0) are both having that problem. The problem can be resolved - to be seen as a work-around - by adding a space at the end of the line.

Adobe Reader DC and Foxit Reader are handling the hyperlink correctly.

Hi guys,

I've reproduced this here in both the Viewer and Editor, so created ticket RT-3806 to track the issue. I cannot guarantee that this will be fixed for the Viewer, as it was discontinued quite some time ago.

Thanks,

Hi all,
Yes, a space helps. Strange, sometimes it appends the first word of the next line, sometimes not. I had also an example where Viewer failed and Editor worked correctly. No need to fix it in Viewer, as Editor replaces it.

Hi Freddy,

It's definitely a little odd, but the ticket has been made so the devs. will investigate and fix as soon as they're able :)
