k2pdfopt v2.41 released

K2pdfopt v2.41 is released. This is mostly a library update, with one minor new feature (erosion filter to thicken text). See details at the web site.

Hi, another question!

Look at the attached files. When I convert this book it ends up like...well very big letters. I just don't understand what is happening.

I use more or less the default settings (for Kobo Aura). I have just added -toc- and -bpc 2. And maybe something more. But the output font size is 12.

And the strange thing is that I have managed to convert this book a couple of months ago without this kind of problem. But I just don't remember how I did it.

I just want to learn more about this.

Thanks.

This is happening because the page size of your source PDF is very large -- 13.7 x 22.9 inches. That's probably a conversion mistake somewhere in the creation process (maybe it was supposed to be cm?). You can see this by clicking the INFO button in the k2pdfopt GUI (or use the -i command-line option). Use the -ds option to correct for this. E.g. -ds 0.5 will get k2pdfopt to treat the document as if it is half its reported size, e.g. 6.85 x 11.45 inches. In the GUI, you can put the -ds 0.5 option into the "Additional Options" box.

Hello
My device Kindle Paperwhite 3.
I have trouble converting pdf as seen on images. It breaks lines uneven. I know I have to tweak but I am stuck, I tried couple options but no avail. I played mostly with smart line break, correct ds. I tried orientation in landscape mode but it is the same. I have marked with red and green box text what should come on right place on images down.

INFO OUTPUT:
PDF VERSION: 1.4
PDF PRODUCER: Apache FOP Version 1.1
CREATOR: DocBook XSL Stylesheets with Apache FOP
FILE SIZE: 9661.2 kB (9,893,099 bytes)
PAGES: 778

I think a source file like this will probably be best converted with the "fitwidth" conversion mode (see "Conversion Mode" drop down--upper right in GUI) if that results in large enough text on your kindle. Either that, or you'll want to protect parts of the text that you don't want re-flowed as shown on this page.

Thank you very much. Region protection will be my way. Regards

Thank you

This is definitely the best solution to convert pdfs into a form readable by e-readers (mine being Amazon PaperWhite 3). I have found that images and multiple columns all work well. There are very few caveats, and I would definitely recommend this over Calibre!

Can you post the 100-page file? If you don't want to post it, send me a private message.
