It tries to resolve 4 issues in all:
1. sometime papercrop may crash, according to my experiment, it happens when calling postprocessimage when some small rects are processed. So I'd try to work around this issue by always do postprocessimage for whole page
2. this script will find max rect in the page, and scale that rect to match your device width, and scale other rects with similar ratio. (seems width is not exported for image, so I take a not-so-accurate way)
3. after the work done in 3. all rects will be concate vertically, and will be split to pages that match your device size.
4. ratio of height to width larger than 5 is dropped, since no reading blocks are in this shape. surely, you could remove this part, if you don't like it

hello

hi,
thanx for the tool. I have a problem with a approx 2000 page pdf book. The cropping starts and at 600 page shows up a window with an error: mallock failed or something. I have tried to split the file with nitro and the papercrop doesn't want to crop the extracted pages. Have you got any suggestions for this problem. Thank you in advance.

Stupid question

So, after I process the file, how do I save it somewhere so I can get it on the reader?? I see the page with the crop boxes outlined, and it looks fine, but can't seem to figure out how to get the final rearranged document?

Click process all pages button. Output will be in the same folder as the input file.

Can't at the moment help you split the pages - but isn't that Ajahn Mun?

Yes, the book is about Ajarn Mun. I've tried "Portrait - Fit image to screen", and it did split pages for me; but it also produces a number of blank pages in between.

I then use pdfmanipulate.exe in Calibre to split it into many files by skipping those blank pages; to my surprise, when I merge those files with pdfmanipulate merge, those blank pages came back!

If you use the latest version on the googlecode page, you can pretrim the borders (using crop T, crop B, crop L, crop R). Then choose "Portrait - Fit image to screen" should not produce blank pages.

Old post I know, but I just found this and it's just perfect for reading research papers on my nook. Excellent piece of software! Thanks a million!

just before the line
function outputImage(image, outdir, pageNo, rectNo)

Anyway it's strange. The file works fine for me.

Good luck,

I had the same problem, and it went away by following this advice.

However, the output directory is empty. I can't find any output pdfs or jpgs anywhere? A folder is created with the same name as the original pdf, but after having pressed 'process', it remains empty.

Interestingly I'm trying this under windows and linux (with wine), and had the exact same original problem (lua error), fixed it, but have the remaining no output problem!

Still patiently(?) waiting for some help on this...

If there's no solution to my problem, does anyone know of any software that does something similar? I'm guessing the answer is 'no', in which case getting it to work is even more important!
