    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Not A Bug
    • Affects Version/s: 2.0.10
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: Parsing, Text extraction
    • Labels:
      None
    • Environment:
      I tested that in the overried showGlyph() method of my class extending PDFStreamEngine, PDFGraphicsStreamEngine or PDFTextStripper.

      Description

      The PDFBox (StreamEngine) extracts only texts that are rotated by 0, 90, 180 or -90 degrees.

      For example, it can't extract texts rotated by 45 or 60 degrees.
