Poppler::Page::textList() is not properly ordered in some pdf files
When I use the function Poppler::Page::textList(), I find that the QList<TextBox *> is not stored in a proper order. I think this might be the pdf script style problem.
There is a comment above Poppler::Page::textList() tells that,"For text written in western languages (left-to-right and up-to-down), the QList contains the text in the proper order."
How can i solve this problem. Any help is really appreciated.
I think the best place for that question would be poppler's mailing list and/or IRC channel
It's already been asked by someone in the Poppler mailing list and i think its not yet solved in there.

Yes the bug report is very old. May be its time to restart it :).
