>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Text extraction
>    Affects Versions: 1.4.0, 1.5.0

> For a PDF that worked fine under 1.2.1 the height value returned is negative and the
wrong value (i.e. using Math.abs()  won't fix it).  Other PDFs work fine.
> PDF Debug shows "Creator:Crystal Reports"  and "Producer:PDF-XChange (XCPRO30.DLL v3.30.0064)
(Windows 2k)"
> And when examining the 'Stream' items, the text is not what displays.
> Any suggestions on what to look for so that I can do differential analysis against other
PDFs to see what they do/not have in common with this one?
> (It's client data so I can't post the PDF. )
> It's stopping us from moving off 1.2.1  (and later versions fix another issue we have
of seeing question marks instead of the actual characters).
