      Description

      The attached file from the linked issue brings this:

      Exception in thread "main" java.io.IOException: Could not find font: /Helvetica
      	at org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.interactive.form.PDDefaultAppearanceString.processSetFont(PDDefaultAppearanceString.java:179)
      	at org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.interactive.form.PDDefaultAppearanceString.processOperator(PDDefaultAppearanceString.java:132)
      	at org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.interactive.form.PDDefaultAppearanceString.processAppearanceStringOperators(PDDefaultAppearanceString.java:108)

      	at org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.interactive.form.PDAcroForm.refreshAppearances(PDAcroForm.java:404)
       

      I'll improve the exception message so that a user would have a better understanding what is wrong in this "difficult" PDF.
