> We use PDFTextStripper to parse some PDF documents. The parsing sometimes assumes the
file template and the order of the words in it.
> The following Kotlin code prints the text content of the attached file, sorted by position.
> {code:java}
> fun main() {
>   val pdfTextStripper = PDFTextStripper()
>   pdfTextStripper.sortByPosition = true
>   val text = pdfTextStripper.getText(PDDocument.load(File("/path/to/file/KYPolicy2.pdf").readBytes()))
>   print(text)
> }
> {code}
> Running this code with PDFBox 2.0.14 and 2.0.15 giving different parsing for the line

> POLICY PERIOD:  FROM 02/18/2018 02/18/2019TO (2.0.15)

> I suspect the cause is the changes done in this commit:
> [https://github.com/apache/pdfbox/commit/068146a9c9fe59becbd82814b6a245f8158fce22]
>  
> This somehow prevents us for safely upgrading to the newer version
