Re: [tdf-discuss] Re: [libreoffice-users] [4.0.3.3 non fixed bug] Link with a space Pdf export error (%20 characters - space ones - exported as %2520 ones)


Hi Everyone,

Tom: as you red in my previous post in the discuss list yesterday I have opened this issue:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=64428

but, thanking to Andras Timar, I have closed it just now because it probably is an Adobe Acrobat Reader 11.0.2 bug/issue!!!

Take a look at the comments in the bugs...

Have All a nice eventing,

Carlo

Hi :)
It might be good to keep the discussion to this thread on the Users List for now. Lets see what other people say and what bug-reports you find about this. Perhaps move it up the "chain of command" after that. I've just noticed that we have been cross-posting all this time. it's better to stick to 1 list at a time for most things.

"- so I don't see the reason to recursively (!!!) substitute the "%"
character when an URL is input in LibreOffice because "%" itself is
already an accepted one;"

A big +1 to that! I don't know why it's being done either. It makes no sense that it happens that way.
Regards from
Tom :)

    Hi Everyone,

    as I told yesterday in my first mail I will look for an already
    created
    issue and if not I will create it. When I make this? Now! ;-)
    In any case I will make you know what I do.

    @Tom:

    I think that:
    - on URLs, browsers - but maybe a behaviour stated on a well
    determined
    W3 Standard or similar open Consortium - substitute spaces with
    %20 hex
    character code;
    - %20 (!!!): that means that "%", "2" and "0" are all (!) well
    admitted
    characters, all (!!!);
    - so I don't see the reason to recursively (!!!) substitute the "%"
    character when an URL is input in LibreOffice because "%" it self is
    already an accepted one;
    - another low probability hypotheses in my head was that LibreOffice
    translate the space on a full 16 bit space character coding, but your
    explain about %25 representing the "%" hex code, rapidly make me
    clear
    what was happened;
    - in any case (!), if you open the with-space link directly from a
    Writer document (ctrl+click for friends o chaps ;-) ) you will get
    the
    right page: in other words the link behave correctly! So the
    problem on
    pdf link behaviour has to be fixed in LibreOffice too!!! :-) But I do
    not think is a too hard to do, is not it?

    Now I will go to open or vote an existing issue and come back here
    soon.
    I think we could also to maintain only one discuss: I will suggest
    the
    tdf-discuss one, what do you think about?

    Have All a sunny day,

    Carlo

    >>> %25 is the code for a % symbol so the 'wrong' link is not
    really wrong after all.  It's just a bit odd and unnecessary.  In
    the 'wrong' link replace all the %25s with % so that %2520 becomes
    %20 and then the apparently 'wrong' link looks right. It's a good
reason for avoiding spaces and non-standard characters in Urls. CamelCase is much less prone to these sorts of problems.
