I have just tried another pdf and it worked, it was awesome. I will have to go thro' the whole thread to grasp all the features. I think I will be using this tool for quite a lot of my pdf files, especially the two column pdfs.

Hello,
I've been waiting for a long time for someone to develop something that would allow me to read screenplays on my kindle. While Briss helps remove all the negative space around the script, it still keeps the size intact. For example, I'm looking for something that will crop it down exactly to the dimensions of the kindle so that when I click on "actual size" in the options itll show up exactly right.

Right now, it's set to "fit" and in doing that, I get light, not crisp, text. I feel like with the cropping AND being able to somehow change the actual size/dimensions, this could be the thing I've been looking for!

Done and here procedure:

-download a little executable (sysexporter)
-http://windowsxp.mvps.org/searchresults.htm
-obtain a txt with all *.pdf in a root folder
with excel create a list with all command (one per file: java -jar briss-0.0.13.jar -s "C:\Documents and Settings\etc etc etc \etc etc etc.pdf")

done

Briss and PDF Scissors seem to be where it's at.
http://www.pdfscissors.com/

But I don't know how to automate crop for exact Kindle dimensions. Eye-balling it and dragging a lasso around the text is the only way I know how to use the program. I'd like to have a batch process as well.

I've managed to crop out the headers from a pdf file, but when I run the cropped pdf file through calibre to convert to .mobi, the resulting file still has the headers in it.

What gives?

What gives is that Briss does not remove these items from the file. Instead it sets a window boundary for what gets displayed. What you observed is the expected behavior.

Use CutePDF to print the file and then Briss to crop :-).

Excellent tool for cropping PDFs. But i notice that the PDF bookmarks stop working after cropping. Is this normal ?

Another satisfied user

I just want to thank the creator of Briss.
I can't believe that Adobe Acrobat doesn't do that (got fooled for a while by their "crop" tool but it is more of a mask).
I found Briss easy to use and very effective.
Thanks

I have a big problem with briss: it doesn't work with files >25mb on my system.

i want to use it to crop scanned pdfs. but whenever javaw.exe uses more than 300mb of the memory, the program (briss) just freezes and nothing happens. i read that i have to increase the java heap space, but i don't know how (i am using win7). help anybody?

Hi,

i found a solution. I used a similiar command line (javaw -xms128m -xmx1024m - jar briss-0.0.13.jar) and i split really big PDFs (>700 pages) with PDFill Free PDF Tools.
