Subject [jira] [Commented] (PDFBOX-4471) Different fields look alike if they have the same /AP/N before value change
Date Sun, 24 Feb 2019 18:02:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-4471?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16776332#comment-16776332

Maruan Sahyoun commented on PDFBOX-4471:

I have to admit that I didn't look into the SO entry but was simply answering the question
"... why we are reusing the existing appearance stream ...". Obviously this will not work
in that case.

Now in order to fix it I don't think that it makes a lot of sense to fiddle around in the
current code but take a similar approach that we have used for non widget annotations - have
individual handlers for that.

[~tilman] WDYT?

> See attached SO answer - in the attached file, different fields point to the same /AP/N
object. I think this could be fixed by changing {{AppearanceGeneratorHelper.setAppearanceValue()}}
by removing the "if" segment in {{if (appearance != null && appearance.isStream())}}
and keep the "else" part only.
> I'm wondering why we are reusing the existing appearance stream, is there are use case
to this? I ran the tests after making the change and there was a difference but it was invisible.
