Thx for the very nice appreciation jackie_w! ;-)

Nudging can be provided. Zooming is rather difficult, but at the moment I work a lot on creating a better suited merging algorithm (not just the simple averaging of pages) which will allow an easier visual recognition of the areas where text and therefore information is located.

btw. automatic cropping and command line function is already implemented in my development, so stay tuned for 0.0.13!

greetings,

I have been searching for something like this for a long time. Can't wait to get home and try it out. And the name is awesome.

EDIT - Tried it at home. Worked perfectly!

I have little confusing in this converting PDF to PDF

Firstly, I tried to crop my scan textbook, so it works but I mention that someone says it's not work when convert to ePub or mobi. It's not "hard" chopping

So, finally after converted you have to put it directly to your eReader?

Please make me clear this, sorry for very poor english

The idea is that Briss can crop and chop the original PDF to create a PDF which will be easier to read on your ereader as a PDF, i.e. don't convert it to epub, mobi.

Oh, I see, I haven't tried it on scanned PDFs so I'm not sure what happens with them.

Feature suggestion:

Save and open templates.

It would be useful when there are series of papers formatted in the same way, which means they can be cropped in the same way.

I’m trying to use Briss to crop out the margins out of screenplays, but I can’t for the life of me get it to crop both even and odd pages.

Here's a link to a sample screenplay:
http://www.raindance.org/site/scripts/127_Hours.pdf


1) I load the document in Briss.
What appears are 2 pages- I think the first are odd number pages, and the second are the evens.

2) I draw a rectangle around the 1st page. A “1″ appears on the shading.

3) But when I draw a rectangle around the 2nd page, another “1″ appears. How do I get it to change to “2″? I draw a second rectangle. It creates a 2, but the original “1″ is still there and I can’t erase it without erasing the “2″ first. How do I erase the “1″ on the second page?

Or, how do I get a “2″ label on on my even page number crop but not “1″?
Does this make sense?

So far, I can get Briss to crop odd pages...or I can get it to crop both even and odd pages, but it duplicates both...so every page is duplicated.

What am I doing wrong?

I could be wrong but I think the "big 1s and 2s" signify how many crop boxes you have specified for that set of pages. So a simple whitespace crop will display 1 for the odds pages and 1 for the evens pages.

If you wanted to split each odd page into a top-half and a bottom-half then you would see a box 1 and a box 2 on the odds pages. It would be similar if you had a two-column PDF. You would draw two boxes for each page and they would be labelled 1 and 2. And a 3-column PDF you would draw 3 boxes and they would be labbeled 1, 2 and 3.

For that document, I don't see any reason to use BRISS; why not use a method that will auto-calculate the crop region for you, so you don't need to manually draw it? You could either use sopdf or a combination of Calibre and Ghostscript. See here.

I've a feature request, could you include an object removal tool?
Sometimes in a pdf there are annoing layers. It's possible to remove them by hand with acrobat on every page, but graphical "batch" remove with BRISS would be perfect.

mhm... I'll give it a try, but although it looks like a small change it could be a lot of work...

I have created a BRISS page on our wiki. Perhaps someone could expand it into a operation manual by adding a section or two.

Dear all,

Briss 0.0.13 has been released! (Oh god, with this counting I'll hit 1.0 in thousands years...)

From the Changelog:
* Added automatically crop rectangle calculation
* Updated libraries (itext, jpedal) fixing several problems
* JP2000 support, finally!
* Added hotcorners(upper left and lower right) to resize existing crop rectangles
* Providing a single file as argument now directly loads it on startup of Briss (can be handy if you have a shortcut defined like "open with")
* Command line cropping (at the moment just with automatic crop algorithm, see Readme for instructions)
* Better visualization of merged images
* Added possibility to reload pdfs for using other excluded pages while retaining crop rectangles
* Added drag&drop functionality
* Automatically clipping of crop rectangles to visible area
* Copy/paste of crop rectangles between clusters
* Hopefully fixed bug where on Mac the crop rectangles couldn't be deleted

It is available from
https://sourceforge.net/projects/briss/files/

Have fun and contact me if you've got problems,
Laborg
