Problems with selection and search

I was just reading a pdf in MetaPDF today when I noticed something. While I used Ctrl+F to find the text which I wanted in the pdf, I noticed that though metaPDF is able to find the text, it doesn’t exactly highlight the text properly. So say I want to look for ‘Word’ in the sentence “This is a Word Document”, it would highlight part of Word and some part of Document as well. I don’t know if this problem is specific to the pdf I have (I opened it in Adobe Reader and it worked fine). Further, I sometimes use double-click to select a word and there, I had similar problems - It selected more than one word.

That seems to be a bug specific to this PDF file. Could you please mail it to

I just found another pdf where I have the same problem. I’ll email that to you as well
