RE: hyper key help



"hacks to read pdf" go away when gnome3 supports tagged pdf --
sure:-)

the "hacks" you refer to   so lightly e.g. pdf2txt -- use the
same underlying mechanisms and libraries that gnome3  uses for
tagged PDF  -- you wont getting anything more or anything
less. Use what works for you by all means --
