Text error when paste from pdf
« on: August 27, 2021, 06:01:23 pm »
Hi, i am having a very strange problem when i try to paste a text from the pdf generated by scribus (1.5.7) to word or libre office, for example. All the words that have "fi" are showing with wrong character (see image). I am using Crimson pro font from google. When i paste from the word or libre, the error doesn't happen (or when i export as a pdf from the editor).

The PDF probably has ligatures, and I bet Word and Libre Office can't handle them correectly.

Thank you. Your feedback made me save a lot of time. I disabled the ligature on the font, and worked!
