Description

4 years ago
Despite some earlier attempts, someone noticed that
internal PDF viewer doesn't print certain characters on printed output.

With the documents above, we don't see some of the opening brackets and opening parenthesis printed on the paper. 

Specifically, in the left-column of page 3, the headers next to the photos
start with opening "[". They are visible on
the PC screen, but when printed, it failed to print (I tested this on
win7 32bit, OKI c8600 color printer, and win7 64bit Canon monocrhome laserprinter combinations.)

It is possible that the opening "[" and a few others that don't get printed may
be Japanese characters, but firefox should be able to print them no matter what the character codes are since they are rendered correctly on the screen.

What you see on the screen should be printed on the printer as well. Correct?

I hasten to add that
the pages are printed as expected if I disable internal built-in PDF viewer.
So only someone in the office who has not disabled PDF viewer noticed the strange output.

TIA
This also crashes OSX with https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/02a252a1-dfce-475e-a681-fe49a2131014

Similar problems here: http://www.concurs-euclid.ro/uploadsubiecte/b7327ed76965a11d3a733119e2bbd73e.pdf

All specific Romanian characters are printed as unavailable characters (i.e. rectangles) -- that is, all instances of "ă", "ș", "ț" and their upper-case counterparts ("Ă", "Ș", "Ț").
