- What led up to the situation?
When I open certain dvi files in evince and set the zoom level to 800%, evince
does not show anything.
I tried to replicate this with .dvi files from TeX, but there this problem does
not occur, as the zoom
level is limited to 400 %.
Here is the path that led me to the problem:
mf beta.mf; gftodvi beta.2602.gf; evince beta.dvi(file beta.mf attached) and set the zoom level to 800%. My mf version is 2.7182818 and my version of gftodvi is 3.0 (TeX Live 2015/dev/Debian)
- What was the outcome of this action? The box displays 611.13%, and the window does not show anything except the black lines (the gray beta and the text disappeared).
- What outcome did you expect instead? The character should have been displayed at 800% zoom.
