Topic: PDTextSelectGetBoundingRect function returning wrong coordinates

Hi, I'm trying to create a link whose bounding rectangle is defined by selected text. I believe PDTextSelectGetBoundingRect is the proper function to use for obtaining the coordinates of the bounding rectangle, but when I hilight only a portion of a word I get the wrong coordinates of the bounding rectangle!
For instance, if there is a word "Appendix" and I only hilight the first 3 characters "App" and use the PDTextSelectGetBoundingRect to obtain the bounding rectangle, I actually get a rectangle that bounds "Append". Basically, I noticed that it returns the twice the number of characters I selected in a given word (i.e. If I select "Ap", then I'll get the bounding rectangle of "Appe").
Does anyone have any ideas?
