Hi, I also have the same problem. Did you manage to find a solution, mate?

I got a Kindle to read science papers (I'm a uni student in Australia) and haven't been able to read equations on it... kinda sad... I wish the Amazon team would fix this glitch already.

For all the open source junkies, if you have Ghostscript on your machine you can work with PDF using both ImageMagick and GIMP.

Am I missing something here, or are you just converting PDFs to static images and then repackaging them as pdfs? You can do this already (acrobat, print -> advanced -> print as image (select your dpi, default is 300, kindle native will be 150 for dx, 166 for k3) then select for printer, adobe pdf) - may have to fix print size to get it native on the kindle, something around the 5x7 area, and it will give you a pdf of images of the document. This will, of course make a 4mb textbook of 500 pages, about 200mb (retarded). It also will not be searchable, unless you run acrobat's OCR function using EXACT ocr, which will introduce errors into search functions (not many, but some).

Using other programs (pdf2html) will not preserve images properly in complex documents, as it confuses metacontent, and has no way to export images. Instead it makes random assumptions and gives you pretty horrid results. Adobe acrobat's export to HTML does a better job, but it still garbles complex images and pdfs with lots of tables/columns.

And for all of you people worshiping mobipocket creator, please stop. Mobipocket creator is a horrible, horrible piece of software. It does not handle PDFs properly. It really barely even handles character encoding properly. All HTML conversion that is done from PDFs uses PDF2HTML and is chock full of errors. Try it out on some complex documents before posting here.


IF you have no official software and only freeware stuff, use this

Adobe acrobat reader (free), you can still print as image I believe (advanced, print as image)
http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/ (printer for packaging PDFS)
now then, any thing you print -> PDF package, it will prompt you to install ghostscript, do it.

When you print with PDF creator, a box will pop up allowing you to configure it, you can manipulate the PDF settings, change compression, and other stuff, so go ahead if you want.

If you have all of the PNG images opened in another program (some image viewer program) and you have them modified, and they are all ordered, go print -> pdf creator, it will package them in a PDF.

I want to convert very large pdf documents that are provided by software vendors as documentation so I can easily read them on the Kindle. Silly me, that's why I bought the Kindle, or at least how I rationalized it. To say that Kindle "handles" pdf files is pretty much a joke. I want something that will break down the pdf page formatting so I can scan pages quickly but keep the tables intact, keep "thumbnails", the table of contents and it's jump tags, the jump tags in the text etc. I've got thousands of pages and I need to be able to navigate. It would be great to have it all in a book reader but I'm not feeling that thats what I've got right now. I've scanned over the threads here and I'll be trying some stuff but does anybody got any new thoughts, particularly about navigation? Any new software versions out there? I guess I'm asking a lot.

I recommend that you try Duokan. With "manual trim" and "smart layout" you can view pdf's on Kindle much better than with the default OS. It is very easy to install, and doesn't affect the Kindle OS.

I don't bother coverting pdf's now, I just load them on my Kindle and use Duokan to view them.

Tinpusher - try using Calibre. It can do this conversion well, and is free. (See the Calibre subforum here at MR).

If you're a commandliner theres a quirk of MIME types that lets you send pdfs to your device in such a way that its properly converted to nice kindleable text, including font changing and text to speech. Disclaimer: Self Promotion http://wp.me/pKDYh-9Q
