is there a way you can give an option to force squish a single page onto just 2 landscape pages on the reader?
I'll look into adding that

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.
Ah, The gray background is causing smartcut not to work corectly (which currently assumes a white background)

Kilarney, try the different built-in profiles. You can tweak them later.

thanks, cool.

Now how would 1 go to desired page? Is there a way to do it on the reader itself?

Thanx for reply - It's good to know what's causing this, so I can try to avoid this when possible

version 0.7 adds preview of pre trimming, catrom filter for resizing images, png files are now generated for embedding in lrf files. Converted over to using threads - so batching is a lot more improved.

Hi cacapee,

Just few small things:
- program still displays version 0.6 instead 0.7
- clicking OK in preview window doesn't seem to do anything
- I don't quite understand the preview window since it seems to display my original pdf

and one new thing - I was just wondering if it wouldn't be useful to add label / textbox with a cmd line command which is generated by GUI options since sometimes you might want to do some tests in UI and then do a batch converting...

Thanx

Wow! Thanks a million Cacapee! This new version works like a charm for me now. My pages split exactly where they are supposed to! Only wish the files sized could be a little smaller but still even that isn't too bad. I just switched to a 2gb card to compensate. Great job awesome utility! YOU ARE THE MAN!

By the way adding the ability to use 32 and 64 colors is NICE pictures no longer look patchy!

Could you tell me what the erode feture does, and how the number setting affects the final output?

Check out http://docs.gimp.org/2.2/en/plug-in-dilate.html

Currently preview mode displays the Trim rectangle.

File sizes are directly correlated with the number of colors (this is true for any tool that generates lossless images)

Well I have been whining about rasterfarian not being available for a while now and probably got on more than one nerve doing it but now that it has been re-released and I get to use it side by side with this utility I realize just how nice pdflrf is! I will still be keeping rasterfarian in my toolbox but I think pdflrf is staying as my main pdf conversion tool!

Happy that you took my suggestions in heart. Are you using some pngoptimizer to squeeze that last bit of size out of the png's?

I've noticed that pdf2lrf doesn't use bookmarks yet, so...
If you use http://www.pdfhacks.com/pdftk/ you can read out the bookmarks in an original PDF and maybe integrate it with the lrf.

reading toc/bookmarks is easy. I have to add that capability to the makelrf source code, which doesn't handle toc.

If you're messing with the makelrf source code fix its creation of the metadata block. It doesn't encode it correctly in UTF16

It needs a complete rewrite - I'm thinking of translating libprs to c++ (probably not the most productive thing I could be doing). BTW I already fixed that pdflrf supports unicode metadata
