Using the f1040.pdf for 2015, I tried:

pdftoipe -merge 1 -unicode 3 f1040_2015.pdf f1040_2015.merge-1unicode-3.ipe

However, when that output file was opened with ipe, an
error message window popped up with:

--{--errormsg contents--
'/home/evansl/Desktop/f1040_2015.mere-1unicode-3.ipe' could
not be opened

Parsing error at postion 262
--}--errormsg contents--

What should I do to avoid this error message window.

My OS:
