:undecided:I still think qpdfview does have issues with some kind of "imperfectly" made pdfs. Cyrillic contamination has nothing to do here. Maybe some libs installed in my system impede qpdfview work in some cases. Although all the libs are from debian repo. The only way I personally see here to test/prove/solve the theory is to have newer qpdfview running on MX17 so far.

qpdfview will not display my bank statements. atril opens and displays the statements fine.

atril, like evince, brings in a lot of other stuff that I don't want on my system.

I use Foxit a lot, which brings only itself: https://www.foxitsoftware.com/downloads/ I unpack it in Downloads, then move it to /opt and adjust the menu launcher with Alt-F3.
