Selection of Text not possible


In your dojo examples of your pdfViewer control you are loading pdf.js version 2.2.2 and with this setting you can select text inside the pdfViewer when the button "enable selection" is klicked.

however, when i try to use the latest version of pdf.js (3.4.120) then the selection of text is not possible

The last Version where it seems to work is pdf.js (3.1.81)

Is this a known Issue? i don't like the idea of having to use such an old version of a js-library. Is this Problem related to kendo or to pdf.js?

Kind Regards,

Hello, Benjamin,

Thank you for reporting the issue.

I have converted the thread to a bug report in our Feedback Portal where you can track its status. I would suggest using the 3.1.81 version until we resolve the issue.

As a small token of gratitude for reporting the behaviour, I am updating your Telerik Points.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
