Summary: bounding box ignored? 
Resolution: Accepted
Group: v1.40.3
Category: PDF inclusion

Initial Comment:

I've got a problem with a pdf inclusion using includegraphics.

I've made a screendump with Firefox using the "Print to File" option and selected  pdf as format.  Using Acrobat, I've cropped the figure.  In kpdf or acroread the result (attached) looks ok.  However, when I create a LaTeX document containing this figure, the output depends on the viewer...: correct output shown in kpdf, incorrect output shown in acroread since cropping is ignored.  I also get the following message:

PDF inclusion: Page Group detected which pdfTeX can't handle. Ignoring it.

I don't know whether it's related to the above problem.

Best regards

The page group bug is fixed in 1.40.6, btw.

It works for me. :-)

Can you try the attached test2.tex and attach your pdf and log, please?
