The Documents app doesn't support pdfs which contain pages with different orientations: It displays all pages in the orientation of the first page. So if the first page is in portrait orientation but every other page is a landscape page, all pages are displayed in portrait mode. But this causes that not everything of the landscape pages is shown.

Maybe it's easier if you just look at it yourself: This PDF is an example for this bug.

Thank you for bringing this up! I stumbled upon the same issue and would be glad about a fix.

So does anyone know which library is used for PDF rendering? Maybe the bug is somewhere in the open-sourced calligra or (maybe) libpoppler part. But if the bug is in the closed jolla-documents code, they are the only ones to fix this bug.
