      Description

      Text that wraps over multiple lines in PDF documents is not extracted correctly by Tika. The expected behaviour would be for it to be extracted as a single line, but instead a line break is inserted at each wrap point.

      This makes it hard, if not impossible, to reassemble text into it's intended form, as it is not known whether a line break in the extracted text is one that appeared in the document or one that was inserted by Tika.
