 Ve-ry cool app!

 
 by kdeappsce on: Jan 4 2006
 
Score 50%

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!

Thanks for your valuable comments! Some ideas and details about the software I had thought about, but some I had not. Thanks for contribution!

I just did not understand why do you say that the source code is not complete. Actually, it is, ok?

Thanks a lot for you interest!

I saw
#include "KPDFTool.h"
in main.cpp but there's no "KPDFTool.h" at all. This is why I thought there's something missing (though built went fine).

 Very good app

The apps run very well, but when I compile I lost the theme of the app. Plastic theme don't run with the app.
However your compilation run with the theme. I don't understand.

In the other hand I modify the app adding the pdf90 functionality. The application can take more utilities.
If you wnt to take my version warn me.


Sorry for my bad english

This is de difference of http://users.servicios.retecal.es/mardelpi/Pdf/PDF1.png --> your compilation and http://users.servicios.retecal.es/mardelpi/Pdf/PDF2.png -->my compilation[/url]. And I don't know why it happens this. In my compilation there isn't a theme.

It's very weird! Well, I'm with Qt 3.3.4, gcc 3.3.6, make 3.80 and KDE 3.5. It can be a problem related to the version of one of these softwares in your system.

I'm interested to see the features you've added to KPDFTool. Could you send it to me?

Thanks!

 PDF commenting switc

Hi,
KPDFTool is great app!

I suggest to add "commenting enable" option to KPDFTool. For now, there are only commercial program like full verion of Acrobat 7 which allow to enable commenting. This is quite new feature and it is very usefull when one have for example to review paper in PDF format. It allows to add comments and remarks just in PDF file.

Hello! What do you think about redering the PDF as image, add your comments with kolourpaint and convert back the image sequence to pdf?? It is simple to implement in KPDFTool.

Thanks

cool app... !! ^_^
i love the simplicity concept..
but i have some suggestion:
- there's no splash screen isn't it..., i think it'll look nice if there is some splash there...
- i think it's nice if we can insert some watermark, pages, in the pdf-ed result...
how bout that?
anyway.. it's still a cool app.. keep the good work, will you..?

...pdf base tool? Me myself I have been thinking about such thing for a long time. Especially about gui supported PDF creation from scans. A while ago I found a little script to do it, and after fiddling around a little bit it's now one of the tools I use most often. It smells like this:

***********************
#!/bin/sh

usage() {
echo "Usage: pdfscan {nameofimage.pdf}"
}

if [ $# -lt 1 ] ; then exit 1 ; fi
name=$1.pdf

# Get scanner device name and scan
scanner=`scanimage --help | tail --lines=1 `
scanimage --batch=$1.%04d.tiff -p -d $scanner --mode Color --resolution 200 --batch-scan=yes --format tiff

#convert to pdf
tiffcp -c lzw $1.*.tiff $1.tiff
tiff2pdf -p A4 -j -o $1.pdf $1.tiff
rm -f $1*.tiff

kghostview $1.pdf
***********************

(--batch-scan is quite likely specific to HP OfficeJets)

It would be great if you could add such a feature to KPDFTool. Good luck!

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
