I'm testing with multiple PDFs fastPDFKit part of the search words and realized that for some PDFs generated in LibreOffice and BrOffice it does not work correctly. I try to get a word in these documents and the words separated appears in miniSearch. For example in the text there is the words "Computer and Vision", and I try to find the word "Computer" it can not find, but if I try "Com" he can find the first three letters and the miniSearch appears "Com pu ter an d Vi si on" with separations between the syllables. This is urgent!!!!

Thank you very much!!

    Hello Luis

    Just want to say we are working on the issue.

    What you are experiencing it is due to the fact that text in pdf isn't always formatted in an human readable form. The kit does run an algorithm with the intent to extract lines, words, spaces from the blob of data from the largest amount of document possible.

    When will this issue be resolved? Because I need this. Maybe in the next update?
    In the tutorial: "Apostila Java" fastPDFKit doesn't work too.

    Thank you!!
