The DLL issue should be resolved in v1.34a. I'm using a new gcc platform (v4.6.3 pre-release) and had to figure out how to remove the DLL dependencies. Please download v1.34a.

First of all a big Thank You for making this App. This is probably the best and the least painful app I have come across to making reading pdf on Kindle 3 painless.

Now the question (You knew that was coming
So my pdf converted nicely but the text size is still a little too small. I tried -odpi from 200 to 300 in various steps and the results were not too good.

Whats the best way to increase the text size even if it means more number of pages.

TIA!

Using -odpi is the way to increase magnification. It would help if you could post or e-mail me part of your document so I can get an idea of the layout to see why you don't like the results for higher values of -odpi. You might check this page. You could also try landscape mode. Is your source document multi-column?

2 questions

Jim -- the word spacing is exactly the same as the source document unless you turn on full text justification. There are presently no options to change it. I am not distributing the source to k2pdfopt because I do not have the rights to distribute some of it. This may change at some point if I can either re-write or replace those parts of it.

Ok .. silly of me not to try it both ways (ie with and without full justify)

Thanks, Jim

thanks for the program.
Just tried the last x32 bit version for Ubuntu (with the default options) on many input PDF files, and it got killed after some time. Now I am trying to figure out which PDF caused that.

okay, I was trying to process a dozen of books in the folder.
I gave it few runs and it got literally "killed" several times randomly with the message "KILLED" in the console.

If you are able to post a link to or send me a single example file that consistently causes k2pdfopt to fail, please do so. Otherwise it will be very difficult to diagnose this.

k2pdfopt v1.35 released

I've just posted k2pdfopt v1.35, which has (hopefully) better column flow in some cases and a debugging mode output option, plus some other features and bug fixes.

Willus, thanks for this MAJOR update which makes this very useful program even better! The program is so good that I prefer to read scientific articles on the Kindle instead as original on paper. I also regularly use your program pdfr.exe to decrease the file size of large pdf-files with unnecessary high native resolution.

I have still some problems to understand the best way to increase text size with k2pdfopt.exe. Should I change input DPI, output DPI, display resolution or document scale factor?
