Font problem when editing TeX produced pdf in external software

When I try to import TeX/LaTeX produced pdf code in Inkscape, then I loose a lot of the interletter and interword spacing, almost all interword spacing is shown wrong, the exponents are not at their normal place, glyphs interlap and so on. Is there anything in the pdf code that TeX produces that can cause that strange behaviour? I use pdftex.

Answers

  1. Check if inkscape can access the font used by pdftex.
  2. Try a lower version of pdf (pdftex command \pdfminorversion ).
  3. See what happens when you convert .pdf to .svg with gsview (menu edit--convert to vector format) or get pstoedit and say pstoedit -f plot-svg <input-file> <output-file> (from inkscape wiki).

I believe the problem may be that Inkscape currently imports text from PDF "as text", replacing fonts by fonts available to inkscape.

If this is the origin of your problem, one approach can be to install Latex fonts for Inkscape. You can follow instructions on http://typethinker.blogspot.fr/2008/06/integrating-inkscape-graphics-in-latex.html.
