      Description

      I have a PDF document (see attachment) that can be viewed in Evince, but tika text extraction does not work. I think that this is due to a crash in pdfbox.

      I'm also a bit puzzled by the message: "You do not have permission to extract text".

      Here the output of the ExtractText command:

      java -jar pdfbox-app-2.0.19-20200206.060243-86.jar ExtractText kst-31430-3-b3_unextractable.pdf tekst_jan.txt
