try it with --run-pages --smart-cut --rotation=90

Alternatively use one of the profiles in pdflrfwin

Network World settings

Anyone have any settings that they're in love with for network world, computer world, or eweek?

Network World is *just* the wrong size -- the fonts are just too small to read in the normal "landscape" profile, and 2col splits the pages in the middle of columns of text.

thanks!

I'm using pdflrfwin (as noted earlier). I can't get the right combination of options. Anybody?

Is this (pictures attached) what you need or something else?

The left hand photos in each of two images are original pdfs, the right hand photos are lrfs after pdflrf 0.99 for Windows processing with default settings.

cacapee will be releasing the source quite shortly (see earlier in the thread), after that we will be able to port/add features as needed.

Hi cacapee,
Thanks for this really useful tool. Could it output pdf too?

I'm an iLiad user, looking for a tool with a GUI to split my two page landscape PDFs into single page PDFs. I've been doing this in a slow roundabout way. I did a test with pdflrf and it worked really well. I can't do much with the resultant lrf though!
Happy to donate to your project if you can help.

pdf via png

[QUOTE=emkay;107331]Hi cacapee,

I have suggested this to cacapee before and he included (zipped) png input and output making his tool a universal one (you can easily convert/print png to pdf). Apparently the library modules he uses for pdflrf provide for png rather than pdf output.

OK, thanks for that. The output options aren't so clear in the GUI.

EDIT: That's worked really well. Good results, and quite a small pdf from the png files compared to the original, which was also image based. And very quick to use.

PDFLRF for OS X

I'm new here and have read everything I can about reading technical PDFs on the Reader, (which I'm hopefully getting soon). Add me to the throngs asking about its use in OS X, and thanking the author for it. Is the current Linux version usable from the terminal?

Well, obviously I'm missing something. I just downloaded version 0.99 for Windows and I can see no way to have it output either PNG of PDF. No matter what I try, I get a LRF.

You should change the extension of output file name from lrf to zip or rar.

Thanks. I later found out about using .zip to get the PNGs. I still don't see how to get a PDF out of it, without using another program, like ImageMagic.

pdflrf does not support pdf output directly. There is a plethora of free programs to convert/print png to pdf.
