Interesting PDF Bugs – Series Article Index

pdf-bugsWhile browsing our blog and categorizing our posts I noticed there was generally a lot of articles that covered Interesting PDF bugs and thought that it would be a good idea to create a separate index about this category. It became clear that we have written far too much and it would be useful to fit it into a single index.

So we have created this index for the hardcore PDF fans who really want to learn about the interesting bugs we have encountered in our time working with PDF.

We recommend starting over at the Understanding the PDF File Format overview Index and the Understanding the PDF File Format: Bugs, Gotchas and Tips before then heading back here if you want to get into all the nitty gritty details of the bugs we have found from over our many years of working with PDF!

The following articles cover a range of interesting bugs we have encountered.

Interesting PDF bugs – How wrong can the references be?
