I notice the same things mentioned by jackie_w (though I think they are minor issues), and my screen resolution is 1680x1050.

Hi, laborg, I got the following error when try to run the program on my Windows XP machine:

" Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: Bad version number in .class file"
I believe this is because the code was compiled on a new version of java and I only have C:\jdk1.5.0_05 installed which might be outdated. To make sure that both the versoins are same, can you let me know which version of jdk should I download? It's been quite a while since I last used my jdk and I don't seem to be able to find the new jdk downloads with my old bookmark now. Many thanks.

OK, I downloaded jdk1.6 and it seems to be working fine. Good application. One more thing, I split each portrait into two landscape pages, however my nook has no landscape mode, so it still renders the landscapes as portraits hence half of the real estate is wasted and it is still kinda small. I was wondering if there is any option in the app that can turn the resulting cropped landscapes counter clock wise 90 degrees (into portrait again) so the nook can truly use the cropped version. Many thanks, good job.

Luma made the same suggestion on the first page of the thread. I hope Laborg gets around to implementing this, but in the meantime, you could make use of slex's advice to luma and use pdftk to rotate the pages after using BRISS.

Ah, I have some issues with this, I cropped very carefully so the page break is between the two lines in the middle of the original page, the resulting PDF looks good on my PC and each following page connects well to the previous, however when I load it to the nook, there is always one or two lines overlapping that I always need to skip that line that I already read. Is there any way to put an option (a check box or the like) to force a "hard" crop? or is the hard crop physically not possible?

Hi!

@geoffc: is there any kind of error message? whats your java version?

@rotation.
At the moment i'm looking for an appartment and my phd demands quite some time, but it in the near future rotation is doable. (still have to make my thougths about how to make it user friendly)...

@Sylver
I'm sorry, but I don't think that a hard crop is possible (at least not in a affordable time). Briss is only a hack I did in a couple of days utilizing two really nice open-source pdf libraries. I hope in future that ebook-readers will get better pdf-renderers, otherwise I don't see a chance for solving your issues.

Version 6 - downloaded earlier this year. No error message given everything flashes very quickly on the screen - too quickly to make anything out.....

Not to worry ....
