k2pdfopt: optimizes PDFs for viewing on e-readers

@wangminh12 thanks for pointing this program from willus.

It rendered my (scanned document) pdf with multiply sized images, split some columns, enlarged some segments, cropped others pages, and really made a suite of differently zoomed images...

All in all, and despite the weird and inconsistent page styles, it produced the easiest reading and best output I have seen for a PDF.

... and I have tried many, many, many PDF "enhancers" to 6 inches screen.

This is a gem.

But it doesn't work for Macs.
K2pdfopt v1.22 works has an OSX version now.

Many thanks Willus. I downloaded the new version and it works great. Now it's much easier to select options to fine-tune things. Best Kindle addon ever imho!

Cheers,

doesn't work with RTL langauges like arabic, it treats the text as english and as a result an arabic sentence is broken in two line but in reverse order which make it unreadable, need to add an RTL option to the app

thanks, but it fails if the document is a mix between arabic and english (i.e an RTL and LTR), the app should change the direction based on the font,
but anyways great effort although if it fails for a mixed doc

It's complicated enough to get mixed LTR and RTL texts to display correctly, I don't think it's easy to process it backwards from image to text, but maybe something could be done with the intrinsic directionality of Unicode characters...
