Ticket #34874 (closed enhancement: worksforme)
okular @4.8.3 - failing to open Document Archive
|Reported by:||jan.deluxe@…||Owned by:||nicos@…|
I observed that okular failes to open the "Document Archive" filetype one can create from within the application by selecting "File -> Export As -> Document Archive".
The error message presented by okular is "Could not open /Path/to/file.ext" (where /Path/to/file.ext is an arbitrary filename). The message being displayed in Console.app reads
okular(1263)/okular (app) Okular::Document::openDocument: No plugin for mimetype '"application/zip"'.
This format is used to exchange pdf documents with annotations created by okular between okular users.
However, okular.app is able to produce that filetype following the procedure mentioned above and it opens fine using okular on a linux box.
I think providing the ability to read .okular files would be a great enhancement for users working with pdf annotations on different OS which do not support the Acrobat Reader X.
Maybe introducing a variant would be a feasible solution until popplers pdf annotation support becomes stable?
Thank your for keeping up the excellent work on macports!
