Reopening PDF from Command Line Deletes All Entered Form Data
Submitted by los..@..or.com
I had several tax documents open. I wanted to bring one of them to the foreground, so I ran evince f1040.pdf from the command line. It opened a new copy of the document with all of the fields blank. This resulted in significant loss of work.
What should happen instead is one of the following: An error that the document is already open Bringing the existing document to the foreground Opening a second copy of the document
I'm trying to make this report this with restraint, but I lost several hours worth of work due to this bug. I'm leaving severity as "normal," but it should probably be higher considering how significant the impact can be.
