Bug Description

I did all my taxes with Evince. When completed, I saved all files. Upon reopening, all filled text fields were blank.

Awesome. Ubuntu 14.04.1 , Evince 3.10.3-0ubuntu10.1

Also, is repeatable.

I believe it only occurs when I edit the file name before saving. Default file name seems to save okay though further investigation may be necessary.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue you are reporting is an upstream one and it would be nice if somebody having it could send the bug to the developers of the software by following the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Upstream/GNOME. If you have done so, please tell us the number of the upstream bug (or the link), so we can add a bugwatch that will inform us about its status. Thanks in advance.

Saving a filled-in version of the file attached to comment #4 of the upstream bug report (an IRS tax form) works here with the following setup:

Ubuntu 15.04 "Vivid Vervet", Evince 3.14.2-0ubuntu2.

Both the default file name and an edited file name save correctly. Reopening the saved file shows the previously filled-in information.
