#1 Updated by Giovanni Manghi over 6 years ago

  • Operating System set to Windows
  • Subject changed from support for georef pdf to QGIS cannot open geopdf under Windows (works on Linux)

#2 Updated by Andre Joost over 5 years ago

Is this still a Windows-specific issue for QGIS 2.6?

Or should the problem be more general as reported in #8912 ?

#3 Updated by Giovanni Manghi over 5 years ago

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

in general opening geopdf now works also on Windows, there are still issues with certain types of geopdf, see #8912
