Subject [jira] Created: (PDFBOX-854) PDPageContentStream.drawString() doesn't work with all PDFs

PDPageContentStream.drawString() doesn't work with all PDFs

                 Key: PDFBOX-854
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-854
             Project: PDFBox
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: PDModel
    Affects Versions: 1.3.0
         Environment: JDK 1.6.0_21
            Reporter: MH

I add custom text to misc exsiting PDF files. Now I wondered why my text doesn't appear for
a specific PDF. It is not encrypted, has the same page size and adding Text with iText 2.1.7
works as expected. My code to add text is:

                            final PDPage page = (PDPage) allPages.get(i);
                            final PDPageContentStream contentStream = new PDPageContentStream(doc,
page, true, false);
                            contentStream.setFont(font, sizeOfFont);
                            contentStream.moveTextPositionByAmount(xf, yf);

I tried to find differences between this PDF and other PDFs. What I noticed: the PDF where
I can't see the text has a PDF-Version "1.3" and was created by "AFPL Ghostscript 8.54". Is
there some known issue with PDFBox and such "older" PDF formats?
