Broken editing of text with absolute kerning
I am using the Ubuntu/Gutsy 0.46pre0 package and have discovered the following bug when importing PDFs: text boxes in the converted file cannot be edited properly. Even when objects are ungrouped, any attempt to edit the text boxes fails: Any new text entered is placed one letter on top of the other, and previously existing text cannot be selected (see screenshot). If a new textbox is created within the same file, however, the problem does not occur.
Thanks for working on what will be a powerful, free PDF editor!
UPDATE: Apparently, the text can be edited once the text box is selected and "Remove manual kerns" is selected from the Text menu. But, I think this is still a bug; regular text does not behave this way.
