Embedded links in some pdf files are displayed enclosed in red boxes

Asked by Biplab Swain on 2012-09-03

I am noticing that every embedded link in some pdf files is displayed enclosed in a red box. For example, I can view this particular pdf http://www.gnupg.org/gph/en/manual.pdf in chrome browser properly but when I view it in evince, every embedded link is displayed enclosed in a red box which is quiet unpleasant to view. Is this a known issue?

Evince version: 3.4.0
Arch: x86_64
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS
Release: 12.04
Codename: precise

Do other PDFs do the same? If not then I suggest you make a new user and test there. If it's the same then it is a bug

Thanks for your prompt response.

I did not notice this behavior with other PDF files. I tested with a new user and the same behavior persists.

I'll file a bug. Thanks again.
