All in One: added bookmarks

Hello!

I've done first step with bookmarks in all-in-one ipdf. It's working now.

Whats done:
1) You can add bookmark for page by pressing icon which following by "pan" icon.
2) You can view and navigate bookmarks by pressing "sort" icon.
3) Bookmarks are stored in manifest.
4) Now it is possible to add just 10 bookmarks (I need to display them in several pages)

What I plane to do:

1) Add comments to bookmark
2) Devide bookmark in to pages
3) More nice design of bookmarks view
4) Pre-load of bookmarked pages

Please, if somebody will try to use it - be careful. I am not sure, that it works correct, so using of this ipdf is on your responsibility.

With best regards,
Mikhail Kostousov

Excellent! I don't know if I'll have time to test this before your next revision comes out-- if I do, I'll post comments. I really need this sort of functionality.

Can the bookmarks be named, or is that the "comments" function you mentioned?

Also, do you have an Amazon wishlist or some other way of contributing something to you? I already gave you some Karma, but this is a huge help to me, and I always said I would pay for this functionality if it were made available.

Great Job!

Hopefully this can be merged into iRex's main ipdf branch. I've made a post over in the iRex forum.

This is just first "release" of bookmarks. Now I see that I forgot something

I can add this functionality to official iRex ipdf branch. But, I am not sure, that iRex will have it. I developed bookmarks for my self, because I suddenly realized that I spend much time just to open correct page. So, I tried. I have no experience in GTK programming, and have no time to get it. So, I created bookmarks dialog by X graphics. May be, it is not good. But I found, that dialog is showed a bit quicker than GtkAuth dialog, and I spend less time, than I would spend with GTK.

I hope, that I will find some time to complete bookmarks. Probably, at next Sunday I will add names and comments.

By the way, did somebody test it?

This is cool. Thx. It is working like a charm.

Mike, can it be that you forgot to strip the binary? It's pretty large w/o it.

[EDIT:] Yes, all other features like fullsreen are in.

Fantastic! And it's nice to see a new contribution to ipdf!

I haven't had a chance to try this yet, but I'm very excited about it. It would be VERY useful. If you add functionality to make comments for each bookmark, I wonder if they could be little handwriting-boxes? That way we wouldn't have to mess around with the keyboard. Although probably a text-box would be easier to implement.

Anyway, excellent work, and I'm looking forward to trying it!

If the input box can take text, the handwriting version of the keyboard input tool can be used. That's what Adam B. did with Gargoyle.

jharker, you beat me to the punch.
I was just going to ask for the same thing, along with a request to have slightly smaller bookmark entries (not so tall) to allow for more per page.
I've just started doing some course work again, and I've been using the bookmarks feature. I'm starting to wonder how I managed without it last time. It's not so relevant for reading fiction I suppose, but for other contexts I can see it becoming indispensible.
Scribbled bookmark descriptions would be great!

Is a stripped binary coming, or should I just go with the current version? I've been holding off just a bit to save space.

You run linux don't you? Why not just get a copy of binutils and run the strip command on it? I think it can strip any binary, regardless of the architecture.

I stripped the binary: before 1,49 MB, after 99 KB. This is a nice saving.
I tested the stripped binary, it is working.

So nekokami or others, do you wanna earn some karma?
You could replace the binary of the flying around ipdf replacement script.
