The new version is working really well. There was one particular pdf I had that no matter how I fiddled with it, the old version would skip pages out. The native pdf mode has sorted all that out.

k2pdfopt v1.61 released

K2pdfopt v1.61 is released. This fixes a v1.60 problem where some user menu inputs were not getting applied. It also is compiled with Tesseract v3.02.02. See the web site for details.

k2pdfopt videos

I've created a couple of videos demonstrating how to use k2pdfopt: an overview and one about the native PDF output modes.

Dear willus.

I have a problem running v.1.61 (windows 32 bits), when I double click it, it just crashes, tried also to drag a pdf file on it, same thing, nothing happens, as if it wants to start then it just crashes. Older version v.1.51 is working fine. I check the windows 32 bits for older CPU and it gives me same problem.

What operating system are you running? How much RAM do you have? If you know how, can you run k2pdfopt from the command-line with these options:

-v -debug

and then maybe post a screen shot? I double checked and the 32-bit version runs okay on my system (Windows 7 64-bit).

I tried it on my work and home pcs, both are Windows xp 32 bits, with 1 and 2 GB respectively.
From command line, it is not working also.

By the way, whenever I double click on the exe file, windows gives a security warning that says "the publisher could not be verified, Are you sure you want to run this software?"
then when clicking "Run", nothing happens.

This never happened on earlier versions, no warning at all.

I re-downloaded the windows 32 bit file with my AV disabled and it did not work also on windows xp 32 bit, but it works fine on windows 7 64 bit. It seems that, the problem is with windows xp. Anyone tried it on windows xp 32 bit?

thanks.

Tried it on laptop with Win Xp Home Edition Service Pack 2 and it did not work.

Does not open or opens black window for a fraction of second and then disappears.

Versions 1.6 and below work fine.

k2pdfopt Windows binaries updated (v1.61a)

I had an issue with my compile of the Tesseract library in the k2pdfopt v1.61 Windows binaries that was causing them not to run in Windows XP. They have been updated. If you downloaded a v1.61 Windows binary before now, you should re-download it. The new ones will identify themselves as v1.61a.

Unfortunately, right now k2pdfopt cannot apply different settings to different pages in the file in one command. So you'd have to convert the first 16 pages with one command and the rest with another command using different options and then perhaps join them with a tool like jpdftweak:

k2pdfopt -p 1-16 -mode fw -f2p -2 magazine.pdf -o out1.pdf
(This will fit the whole page and trim the margins.)

k2pdfopt -p 17- magazine.pdf -o out2.pdf
(This will do the default conversion with text wrapping.)

jpdftweak -i out1.pdf -i out2.pdf -o final_output.pdf
(This will join the two converted files.)

I can't get the -n (native) command to work. I'm running v1.61a x64 Windows version on Windows 7. I've tried several different pdf files with non-bitmap text but k2pdfopt still outputs bitmapped pdf files. Am I missing some needed additional command?

Sorry it's confusing, but text wrapping, which is also on by default, overrides native output mode, so you need to explicitly turn text wrapping off (-wrap-), or use a mode like "fitwidth" or "2col" which does this for you. See the native PDF output help page. I'll probably offer a -n+ option in v1.62 that forces native PDF output by turning off anything that conflicts with it.
