The most reliable way for you to convert your PDF file (if you want native PDF output) is with the -bp option. This ensures that every converted page will have content from only a single source page. Most of the issues you are having are because of the way k2pdfopt renders multiple source document pages onto one destination page. If the two source pages use the same macro name for different things, then the result is that the macro from the earlier page gets overwritten by the macro from the later page, and the displayed converted page is then incorrect. With some PDF files you can get away with it because each page has different macro names, but with your particular PDF file, you cannot (this is why examples are so helpful). There is probably a better way to combine two source PDF pages into a single destination page, but I haven't figured it out yet (still learning about PDF).

Unfortunately, that means you have to live with the gaps due to the page breaks. There's not much I can do about that given that -bp has to be used to render the converted file correctly (unless you use non-native mode by adding -n-). Sorry I can't do better for you for now. I'll try and investigate more about how to render multiple source pages into one destination page. I think there are other programs that do it that I can try and learn from. ....
This issue with content from two different source pages being put onto a single destination page has been resolved. The next release will not have this issue.
