Test opening and displaying documents using the Document Viewer app (Package-x-generic-16.pngevince).


  1. Download or copy some PDF documents to the testing environment. Very large and complex files make good tests. Portable Document Format (PDF) 1.7 specification is a good example, but try also to test other documents.

How to test

  1. Open the test document(s) with the Document Viewer app (this will be the default action in the GNOME desktop if you open the documents from Files).
  2. Test scrolling through each document.
  3. Test jumping to specific pages of each document, by clicking on chapter headings in the side bar, and by entering a page number in the header bar.
  4. Close the application.

Expected Results

  1. The document(s) should be loaded reasonably quickly and correctly displayed.
  2. You should be able to scroll through the document(s) without excessive delays.
  3. You should be able to jump to specific pages in the document(s) correctly and without excessive delays.
  4. Document Viewer should close correctly. It should not crash, unexpectedly close the document, or display any errors.
