      Description

      I'm using PDFTextStripperByArea, this code makes it die:

      stripper.extractRegions(page);

      Assuming, the language is Chinese or Japanese, that's the error:

      ===========

      =========

      Should I use something else instead of PDFTextStripperByArea?

      Let me know if more information needed. I attached the PDF file.output.pdf

      ====

      To reproduce use the attached  above output.pdf and the standard PDFBox app:

       java -jar pdfbox-app-2.0.12.jar ExtractText output.pdf
