Description Tim Jowers 2007-01-31 16:38:28 UTC
Description of problem:
Try to search within a PDF. Finds the first match but not all. Sometimes jumps
back and forth on a few matchs while ignoring all others.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
All the time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. evince GnuLinKernArch.pdf &
2. Ctrl-f then enter "struct page"
3. Patiently wait for the % counter to go to "5 found on this page"
4. Cycles through matches on the page and ignores others in pdf.
5. Edit->Select all
6. Edit->Find, enter "struct page"
7. OK, now finds them on many pages.
8. Loop through all mathces once with fine next button and then goes back to #4
set of matches and never loops to the others anymore.
9. Cannot tell if it is a bug, a feature, or EBKAC.
Actual results:
Some matches are never shown or are shown only the first time in looping through.

Expected results:
be able to keep searching through results

Additional info:
kghostview has no searching.
xpdf was not installed for some reason.Ok, yummed it and it is good.

> Search still ignoring "lun" matches.

Hi Aleš,

what do you mean by that the search ignores "lun" matches?


Comment 5 Ales Ledvinka 2014-11-19 14:55:25 UTC
was searching either for LUN or for lun string in that document with terrible results compared to other app.

Comment 6 Marek Kašík 2014-11-19 15:07:37 UTC
Does that mean that the search didn't find the LUN on a page on which it is actually present?
Which other app have you used?

Comment 7 Ales Ledvinka 2014-11-21 12:18:55 UTC
1. yes
2. xpdf

Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 08:31:10 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '20'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 9 Fedora End Of Life 2015-06-29 11:29:19 UTC
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
