the error was telling me i was missing a class file. I ended up re-downloading the program, making sure i had the most recent version. This time I noticed the file came up as a 'jave executible' so I just doubleclicked on it instead of going through the command line.. and it worked! No idea what was going on before but I've got it working now :P

Now to find a similar free program that will let me rotate the pages...

Brilliant

Thanks a lot, mate!

This software works beautifully, despite not having the nicest UI ever made

Truth is it solves the problem (huge problem) of having to crop PDF files so that they occupy e-reader screens on their totality. It is so fast I though there had been an error in the process. But no, the new file was there and the crop was done. The approach to help the user determine the right crop is really original. It takes all even and odd pages and overlays them separately. Then you can draw a rectangle (or several) encompassing the parts you want in the output file.

Really mate, thanks a lot! I just registered to let you know you save the day, at least for me!

Cheers!

It's a great piece of software, I have been using it fot cropping pdf's for the last two months. It makes reading technical documents easy. I also use it for removing large margins and for cropping double page scans. Thanks for such a great freeware!

Some PDFs not displaying

Many thanks to Gerhard / laborg for this excellent software! I've noticed that some of my PDFs won't display in briss, and I wonder whether it's related to OCR. Has anyone found that some PDFs don't display in briss? They can still be cropped, but one has to guess where the desired area might be.

I've been using soPDF command line tool for a while now and only just bothered to figure out how this tool works- it's bloody fantastic! good job!

Is there a way to zoom in?

I can't get this to work. I have PDFs that have page numbers and headers. I want to use Briss to hard crop that information out so that the conversion using Calibre is cleaner, but every time I draw a box that looks right, my final version ends up with the edges of text cut off. I can't make a box big enough around my content so that it all shows up.

What am I doing wrong?
