Still patiently(?) waiting for some help on this...

If there's no solution to my problem, does anyone know of any software that does something similar? I'm guessing the answer is 'no', in which case getting it to work is even more important!
Try BRISS. In fact, I pesonally like it better, since it doesn't rasterize everything, and is platform neutral. It isn't specifically tailored for multiple columns, but since you can hand-define as many crop regions as you want, it does the same thing.

Hi,

That's great. At first I thought the tool wasn't working, when I saw all the similar pages blurred together. Then I realised it was saving me a heck of a lot of time.

I couldn't ask for anything more than this tool. Thanks for the pointer!

Hi Taesoo Kwon,
I downloaded the tools and ran this on one of the technical paper with 2 columns.
While running a process all pages, I chose ( portrait) vertical scroll (outputs a single image if not too big).
But it was taking the crop numbers not in sequence. For the first page it was fine. But from second page it took the left column to be the first crop and col1 as the 2 crop. Can u please help me resolving this .

Thanks
VJ

Having just tried PaperCrop 0.43, I found I was getting the same error (lua error config.lua:104: attempt to compare nil with number) as per Issue 6 on your web page.

Unlike the raiser(s) I encountered the problem with Windows XP.

You might be interested to know that the problem only occured when the "Process current page" button was pressed, it did not happen when the "Process all pages" button was used.

This in turn raises a different issue - when a pdf contains different page orientations / margins (in my case a landscape cover page followed by portrait contents) is there any way to process a range of pages with one set of parameters then another range with other parameters.

Even if single page processing was working, I could not face processing 159 pages one at a time.

I will add this functionality in the next version.
By the way, it is difficult for me to answer questions here.
Please use the issue tracker on the google papercrop project page.
Thank you.

Taesoo.

Hello, I am the programmer of papercrop. This thread is too old and I no longer regulary visit this thread. If you have any problems or questions about papercrop, please use the issue tracker in the code.google.com/p/papercrop page instead. Thank you.

I had the same problem, and it went away by following this advice.

However, the output directory is empty. I can't find any output pdfs or jpgs anywhere? A folder is created with the same name as the original pdf, but after having pressed 'process', it remains empty.

Interestingly I'm trying this under windows and linux (with wine), and had the exact same original problem (lua error), fixed it, but have the remaining no output problem!
Ya i have the same problem of no output. except when i press process current page.

I'm sorry for the double post, but you convert pdf to jpg 800x600 pix.
The screen itself has a small bar on the bottom.
Isn't it better to convert to something like 790x600 pix?
just a question.
calibre already has all the ereader screen dimensions. just chose your ereader and it'll tell you.

(maybe I'll make a list and post it for convenience.)
