Ligature glyph bug

When copying and pasting text from (some) PDFs any text after a fi (and ff I believe) will be truncated and not included in the pasted text. I believe this is the same bug as one listed on mozilla/pdf.js

Steps to reproduce

  • copy text in PDF. Include sequential letters fi or ff (eg certificate)
  • paste into Obsidian
  • pasted text will truncate at the sequential letters (although the text itself has been

Expected result

The text should be pasted as copied (and as is on the clipboard)

Actual result


  • Operating system: MacOS
  • Obsidian version: v0.12.3

Additional information

Please, post a screen recording.

Does it happen if you copy that pdf from chrome to a texteditor?
