While you wait for 2.7, try this...

While you wait for 2.7 to deliver on new features in the PDF viewer to make letter sized PDF's more visible you can try this tool I wrote.

It utilizes the PDFBox Java Toolkit from http://www.pdfbox.org. You'll need to grab that in order to use this command line tool.

It's written in Java so you can pretty much use it anywhere you can get java, a command line, and some PDF's to rotate and crop.

If there is demand I can put together a GUI addition to the tool for the command line challenged.

I'll put together more detailed instructions for running the tool later tonight, in the mean time, those with Java skills can have at it.

Thank you very-very much for it! Was looking for it (and had the same idea) very long time. Didn't know about pdfbox-project.
This approach is much better than converting to image-pdf, size is much smaller, quality much better and conversion time much less (even it is by using Java!).

Thanks again!

Hey-hey! Java is my favorite language also, >5 years of experience Java is fast, especially with using 5.0/6.0, but in some areas C/C++ is still better

P.S. Btw I started creating GUI application similar to JAP (Just Another Priner), but my one will produce real PDF, but not images PDF as JAP does. By using JFace/SWT, btw, so will be really fast
