Text selection in pdf with poppler

Poppler is a PDF rendering library used in evince and okular.

In yaco we are working in evince accessibility and evince uses poppler, so we are working in poppler too.

Poppler does not make table selection in "order". It detects tables as columns, because poppler uses distance between text to decide what is a column so tables are selected in column order when the "logic way" is as rows.
