KPDFTool

Very handy application, only, it's a pity that you can't search in the output pdf anymore.

Thanks!
Actually the protected PDFs do not contain the text, just a collection of images of the document pages.

 New functions

 
 by Crono on: Jan 2 2006
 
Score 50%

It's great someone cares about pdf handling. And good to hear that you want to implement even more features.

Some ideas if you want to enhance your app with some more functions:

pdfk (http://www.pdfhacks.com/pdftk/), a pdf tool with some nice functions

PDFjam (http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/statistics/staff/academic/firth/software/pdfjam/), could provide also some functions

Also, KDE developer Inorog promised tutoring if someone wants to make an interface for manipulating PDFs a la pdftk in case someone needs advice (http://www.kdedevelopers.org/node/1631).

Would be cool if your tool would evolve into something even greater!

Thanks a lot for the information! Working with PDF and PostScript files in a easy way is something very usefull nowadays. That's the idea I had in mind when I wrote this application.
Certainly I will find usefull information in that links. Thanks very much.

 Ve-ry cool app!

 
 by kdeappsce on: Jan 4 2006

Thanks a bunch. I just needed an application like this some days before, so I installed mbtPdfAsm found on http://thierry.schmit.free.fr/dev/mbtPdfAsm/enMbtPdfAsm2.html and it did what I wanted, but KPDFTool seems to be much cooler for mice artists like me :))) .

Some comments:

  • The source doesn't seem to be complete
  • File open and file save dialogs always jump to /home/ per default. It would be cool if it defaulted to ~/ and would remember the last used directory, at least during a session
  • When trying to output a file to /home/ there's no error message that I don't have write priviledges
  • The default window size could be a bit larger, and window resizing could work better (buttons staying in place, tabbar resized etc.)
  • I wonder if it wouldn't be more consistent to have (besides the input file(s)) a destination file field for each action. I find it a bit confusing that I get asked for the output file name when pressing the OK button. I'd prefer to define the "Destination file" equally to "Source file". Furthermore, I'd rename the OK button to something like "Process" and disable it until Source and Destination files have been defined
  • Command line options like the following would be very cool:

    • -h and --help to give a short command line help
    • -v and --version which prints the program version to the shell
    • -i and --input to specify input files on the command line
    • -o and --output to specify the file to create
    • Switches to specify the processing type on the command line:

      • -m and --merge
      • -e and --extract (currently known as "Split PDF", but actually it doesn't split but extract pages)
      • -r and --render
      • -p and --protect


    This way it could be driven completely from the command line and we could create servicemenus. Example: kpdftool --merge -i 1.pdf 2.pdf 3.pdf -o all.pdf


Anyway, cool application, thanks a lot for writing it!

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
