I have a project that involves creating a pdf reader in Flex.  pdf2swf seems like the perfect tool, but I'm running into a few problems.  The biggest of these seems to be with pdfs created by LaTeX.  They convert and load into Flex fine, but the problem occurs when I try to do any sort of searching for text using the TextSnapshot class.  It appears as though all the text in the file has had all whitespace removed.  For example, a sentence that looks like this when copied from a pdf....

The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.

... will instead look like this when copied from the converted swf....


This is kind of a show stopper for me. Has anyone ever run into a similar problem or have any idea how I might fix this?
