Summary0018005: CentOS 8 GEDIT is creating false *.pdf/*.ps files - characters are lost - margins are NOT applied
DescriptionThe first line of the attached file "check.txt" contains 112 columns. After having set paper
to 8.27" x 11.69" (= A4 210 x 297 mm) and margins to TOP=BOT=RIGHT=0.24" (6 mm) and
LEFT=0.67" (17 mm) the attached "check-c8-*.pdf" show LEFT=0.97", TOP=0.58", RIGHT=0, BOT=1.07"

In addition chars 98 - 104 of line 1 GOT LOST !!! (Text Wrapping = ON), chars 105 - 111
are wrapped to a new line.

The same error turns out in ps files which results in wrong paper prints.

The same error is with a "pure" GNOME Desktop as well as with a XFCE Desktop (GEDIT installed).

List of attached files
check.txt
check-c8-gnome.pdf
check-c8-xfce.pdf
check-c8-gnome.ps
check-c8-xfce.ps
check-c6.pdf correct CentOS 6 file
check-c6.ps correct CentOS 6 file
Steps To Reproduceload check.txt into GEDIT, use print dialog to set paper and margins, print to file *.pdf or *.ps
Additional InformationCOMMENT
It is completely unclear to me why a more as twenty years old program with no substantial changes
in the meantime suddenly fails. I would be very garateful to learn about this.
