I just bumped into this when trying to do a screencast about Okular (for a upcoming KDE promo site). I must say it is rather unfortunate, and I don't think I will demo this feature as it is - it will only make ppl feel betrayed if they find out it doesn't work as it should. This is no stab at you guys developing this app - Okular is way cool. It's just that this issue somehow has to be solved. I have no idea if this even works properly in for example Adobe acrobat reader, or any other app - I suspect this is pretty hard to do, given the little I know about layout stuff in PDF's. Pitty...

Anyway. I hope this can be solved someday - somehow. Meanwhile, keep up the good work. Okular is really nice, but still has many small issues...

I do wanna say the selection mechanism you guys made (right mouseclick - select an area - copy text/picture) works SOO GOOD :D
