someone else has just posted a link to PDFscissors. which looks to be a freeware pdf cropper designed for removing headers & footers from ebooks.

a crop function built into calibre would be very useful - - not a geeky command line with data input' but a simple page image + drag top & bottom cut off point tool - just like this one in fact:

http://www.pdfscissors.com/
I am totally astonished with the unexpected results

I cropped two different PDF's, using "pdfscissors"
The header and footers were 100% eliminated on the new PDF's saved by PDFSCISSORS

But, when doing the conversion using latest Calibre version, targeted to a MOBI file ( kindle 3), the header and footers ( that do not appear anymore on new PDF files, are showed on the MOBI file. ( exactly equal as when using original PDF's.as input files ????????????????

I suppose I am missing some setup on Calibre, but can find which one/one's


could anybody send a rescue
thanks in advance

jjose

same results if I use "PDFfill pdf editor" for cropping header/footer

Most pdf cropping utilities only change the visible page boundaries of the pdf, they don't actually eliminate the text data.

You need to either find a utility which both crops AND deletes hidden text, or you need to use Calibre's search and replace to delete the headers.
