Preview is in the plans. One suggestion is to limit the number of pages to two, so you can see the effect of pretrimming. Use the View button. That makes the turnaround much faster. Also you only need to get results that trim off non-whitespace borders, lines etc. pdflrf's whitespace cropping will take care of the rest.

Multithreading is also in the plans.

Buddy, it's a great job! I've been following your progress since 0.1. You've changed the history of Sony Reader!

Very nice improvement. I'm trying portrait mode now with this Wowio book. Seems to look good enough in Connect's preview to be possible to read comfortably that way.

Does it happen with the commandline too? Can you post the settings and/or the file?

It looks like relating to the file name in version 0.5. I am trying to convert a PDF file with file name other than English and error happens. If I change the file name into English, there is no error. The strange thing is that in 0.4 there is no such an error.

What I need is a list of steps to reproduce this bug here. That will make it much easier.

Thanks

Edit: Are you sure you could open non-ascii filenames in 0.4? As far as I know Unicode support is only for metadata. filenames are tricky cause the libraries only take in ascii filenames.

I'm seeing a bug with very large PDF files (1000+ pages): I'll get a run of "blank" pages.

I tried the "first/last" page arguments and it still happens, although in a different location.

Still, this is an outstanding tool. I was using Acrobat Pro to crop the books but this does a much better job.

Heh, There's a tiny vertical gray rectangle on one of the pages. This rectangle is being drawn across multiple images. I'll fix this by adding a minimum crop width which I've been meaning to do anyway. In the meantime get rid of pages like page 43

I'm using the comic-landscape mode, without changing anything in the settings, not even the crop option (maybe that's the problem?). Also I would like to ask if .cbr support is going to be added.

As far the file, it happens with every file I' ve tried.

I'm looking forward to a native linux version. A tool this good should be multiplatform. Maybe the author would consider releasing the source for porting?
