Ticket #730 (new defect)

PDFPlugin: use_sections option turned on generates a Page 0

Reported by: ak19 Owned by: nobody
Priority: moderate Milestone: Possible 2.88 Release
Component: Collection Building Severity: major
Keywords: Cc:


When the use_sections is turned on in the PDFPlugin, for PDFs containing extractable text, it generates one extra page that contains nothing: a "page 0" that precedes all the others. Not only is it not a necessary (but rather confusing) addition, but the Go To field/button on "page 0" doesn't work.

In contrast, when working with image-only PDFs (ones with no extractable text), and the pagedimg_jpg option is turned on in the PDFPlugin, there is no empty preliminary page generated when viewing such a document in Greenstone. It starts at page 1.
