problem with text added to pdf under Xournal after exporting to pdf

    Under Xournal, I add some text to a pdf file, and then I export to a pdf file. In the exported pdf file, the text I added is shown correctly, and selectable, but when I copy and paste the selected text out to a text editor, it is not the same text I added.

    For example, under Xournal, I add text "locking" to a pdf file, and in the exported pdf file, when I select the text and copy and paste it into a text editor, the text is "PSGOMRK".

    I wonder if it is a bug of Xournal?

    How can I make the selected text from the exported pdf file the same as the text I added under Xournal?

    My OS is Ubuntu 12.04, and the version of Xournal is 0.4.5.

    This should be corrected in xournal 0.4.8. With earlier versions, the workaround is either to use Postscript Type 1 fonts (instead of TrueType fonts), or to use File -> Print -> Print to File -> PDF instead of Export to PDF.
