hyphens remove

Hi, as i know k2pdfopt has tool to search and remove hyphens from pdf, but all output files i converted still have hyphens between words like hyperi- on, i tried to add -hy+ (-hy) in command line but it also didn't work, the language of files is russian, may it cause the problem or it some kind of bug? Maybe there is some other program to remove hyphens?

Another user has recently reported this as well. I am looking into it and hopefully will fix it for the next release. The language should not matter.

@sage79 and @Mezzo-- yes, the hyphen detection has been inadvertently turned off since at least v1.66(!). I've fixed this for the next release. It works well on sage79's sample. Thank you for notifying me.

Retaining TOC in pdf's

Hi,
If I have a pdf with table of contents , after I convert it using k2pdfopt
the resulting pdf does not have a table of contents. Is there some way to retain this. I want to be able to directly jump to the start of the chapter I want to read, using the table of contents menu in kpw.

Thanks,
Miheer

Sorry--this feature is not available. I am hoping to add it at some point (it has been requested before), but I can't promise anything at this point. If the original PDF has searchable text, then you should be able to search for the chapter names, but that's about the best I can offer.

Thanks for this great tool, it is the only tool that let me read pdf on my kindle PW. I used it a lot for Arabic files, but I always experience non-even font size, most of the time I get one page with big font, but one line with very small font. I tried to change the gab between rows and/or between words, but, still have difficulty to get it right.

Can you post an example of your source PDF file and the options you are using to convert it (or PM it to me)?

I sent you an email, but I thought, I should post here as maybe someone will be interested.

As I mentioned I'm having difficulty to get a pdf file with a proper font size, always getting some lines or pages with very small fonts. I tried several options like changing the gap between lines, and between words. Here is what I do when using command lines. My file is Arabic.

-r -dev kpw -gtc 0.005 - gtr 0.02 -gtw 0.009 - p 1-10

I tried several values for gtr and gtw, but I didn't get it right. Attached is a file I tried.

I'm not at my PC at the moment, but the pages look a bit skewed. Did you try adding the autostraighten option (-as)? It might do the trick.

Yes, I tried autostraighten, but still it will give big and small fonts.

Another interesting thing is with default params new version 2.01 generates pdf almost 20% greater then old v1.62. Maybe there are some default params changed.

Part of the problem is that your document dimensions seem very large--13 x 20 inch pages--this was making the default output size very large. I used -ds 0.5 to scale them down to a more normal page size. After that, it was a matter of using a high enough value for -gtr and a low enough value for -ws so that k2pdfopt could correctly split the rows and words, and also using autostraighten. This is what I ended up with:

k2pdfopt -ds 0.5 -as -r -dev kpw -gtr 0.05 -ws 0.25 file.pdf
