Hi,

The tool is great!!! I love the output

but It seems to crash from time to time especially when my files have long names with dots and other things like that

oh and one more (just UI issue) - if your filename is long you can't go to the end of text in filename textbox for output filename.

Thanx again for a great tool

One thing I noticed: If you close the parent GUI task (pdflrfwin.exe) while converting, the child task (pdflrf.exe) remains active.

version 0.6 adds support for unicode filenames (previously only unicode metadata was supported), cbr/rar files, better error reporting and assorted bug fixes.

Multithreading is also in the plans.
First of all, you're one of the Great Ones.

Just to suggest, if you add preview of two pages, don't forget to include option to choose which two pages (they can be side by side, but it's always good to choose some in the middle, or specially problematic ones, rather than first two).

It's just the reminder, probably you'd do that anyway, but I felt obliged to post it.

Thank you man for your great SW. It's not small (except in size on HDD) one. Excellent.

Isn't it possible to choose pages you want to covert by putting page numbers from and to??

It works cool now! Even with long filenames containing non letter characters.

Thanx dude

The converter is great - even better than RasterFarian.

cacapee,

if you are able to fix the "cropping" problem that jaffer1979 described in the RasterFarian thread then you are a real hero!

I agree this would be an awesome utility. The lack of a ui drove me nuts about rasterfarian this program is simple to use! By the way I posted the sample pages in pdf format in the other thread I had to zip them though to beat the 5mb limit.

I have a suggestion. I converted a few magazines and comics over to try this out and they looked pretty good (even in fit to screen mode). But when I tried the landscape mode there is always a little bit of the page left so it goes to 3 landscape pages for 1 page. I think the smart cut option is supposed to help, but is there a way you can give an option to force squish a single page onto just 2 landscape pages on the reader?

Hi,

I've noticed that for some of my PDF's when converted to LRF have last line on page cut between both pages and some letters slightly overlap.

If you will have any idea I will really appreciate it (maybe one of the settings needs to be adjusted - I'm using default ones and version 0.6).

I'm attaching pdf and lrf files.

Thanx!

Can somebody tell a dummy like me what the ideal settings are to convert your average PDF book to LRF?

Are you converting books into landscape format? What other settings should be tweaked from the default settings?
