Cut 2-column PDF with freeware cut2col

Just wish to share a freeware developed by a teacher at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand.

We can use this freeware to cut 2-column PDF document and rearrange it to be easily read on small ebook reader. Please try and give feedback direct to the developer. ( somchaip@chula.ac.th )

Though the website is in Thai, I believe you can easily use this software without any laborious instruction. You need Java runtime version 5 up to run this software.

The preview we get on right side is an advantage over briss! Thank You.



Oh but you can't use it to just remove margins. It forces two columns of PDF compulsarily.

This is just superb!! I've been processing 2 column academic papers using several different tools. Looks like this one is just a perfect 1 click solution. Thanks very much for posting this - heaps of K headed your way I'm sure

Edit: Here's a google translated version of the page if anyone's interested.

This homepage seems to be down.
Could anyone upload it somewhere else? Maybe http://rapidshare.com/

That would be great!
