Get yourself a new poppler version and it will work.

If you can't get opensuse to do that you can always try the flathub version of okular.
Comment 2 Philippe ROUBACH 2022-08-21 10:41:29 UTC
ok thanks
Comment 3 Philippe ROUBACH 2022-08-21 10:46:15 UTC
In openSUSE Tumbleweed the version of poppler is 22.08.0 and poppler data 0.4.11
Comment 4 Philippe ROUBACH 2022-08-21 10:49:58 UTC
I see here


That last version is 22.08.0.

Are you sure this is fixed with 22.08.0 ?
Comment 5 Albert Astals Cid 2022-08-21 16:21:42 UTC
Pretty sure yes.

Comment 6 Albert Astals Cid 2022-08-21 16:23:20 UTC
I guess the issue is that your fontconfig is broken and you don't get a proper substitution for the ZapfDingbats font.

Can you attach a screenshot of file->properties->fonts after opening the saved file?
Comment 7 Philippe ROUBACH 2022-08-21 16:42:04 UTC
I sent a bug report to openSUSE

I confirm with okular from flathub there is no problem.

I re-install okular then I answer to your question.

Roboto Regular is a terrible ZapfDingbats font replacements, fix your fonts configuration in your system, not much we can do here.
Comment 11 Philippe ROUBACH 2022-08-21 17:37:36 UTC
OK what font to use for replacement ?
Comment 12 Albert Astals Cid 2022-08-21 17:43:16 UTC

> OK what font to use for replacement ?

One that implements a proper replacement for ZapfDingbats, there's many, givne that the flathub version works for you, you can at least one valid replacement there.
