Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-1199) Tika extracts weird signs instead of text
Date Thu, 21 Nov 2013 14:57:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1199?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13828990#comment-13828990

Marc Teutelink commented on TIKA-1199:

I did the same thing just now. Maybe the PDF file uses a specific font that is embedded in
the file an maps to images of karakters instead of ASCI or Unicode characters. I tried selecting
and copying it and that doesn't work either, which more or less proofs my theory.
