Importing a pdf file with text in it (file created with and exported from Rhino), the vector comes in but not the text, despite the checkbox “import text” being checked… Normal? Bug?
Sample file below…
Same here. I often get no visible text, but SelLast reports text entities have been selected. I just delete them.
The other peculiarity I often see is that when text does import, it all appears as a single, long line of text with each block of text overlapping the others. The first text item starts at 0,0 and subsequent others trail across the screen in +ve X direction
Here is an illustration of what @MattE has experienced.
In this case the text was so tiny and spread out on single lines, so it just looked like a random line and SelText said it was there but didn’t select it. I found this one by chance using seltext and increasing the size in properties - made me realise there are a few drawings kicking around with tiny text strings lurking.
It looked fine on the original PDF so something went wrong on import.
