The text in a Japanese pdf created by pdfCreator cannot be copied correctly if GS 9.00 is used. Text copies correctly if GS 8.71 is used.
Steps to reproduce:
1) On a Japanese Windows XP OS, install pdfCreator 1.20
2) Print a japanese text document from Notepad to the pdfCreator printer.
3) Open the resulting PDF and attempt to copy text and paste into another document.
Expected Result: The pasted text should be the same as the text in the PDF.
Actual Result: The pasted text is garbled. Copy attempted in both Foxit Reader 4.0 and Adobe Acrobat Reader X.
Additional Info: The problem does not occur if GS 8.71 is used. The following two tests produce the expected result:
a) Install Ghostscript 8.71 and reconfigure pdfCreator options to use this instead of the bundled 9.0.0.
b) Downgrade to pdfCreator 1.0.2 (with internally bundled GS 8.71).
