how to crop pdf
« on: December 27, 2014, 03:49:52 PM »
hello!

you know when you save powerpoint slides in word.doc file?

it saves each slide in two columns, or at least this is how they did at these files I got

and the files are in pdf

what I want is to have each of these slides in seperate page or file

in other words I want to crop them and save them seperately, but ofcourse in the correct order!

is there any way to do it fast, as it's 45 pages of approx 6 slides in each page?

thanks!

You can do it in Briss...

http://sourceforge.net/projects/briss/

looks good and promising, but
I loaded the file and it doesn't even display it properly!

Hmm... confirm that it doesn't display your test file correctly.

BUT - I tried drawing 6 rectangles in approximately the right places and did a preview of the output and it worked! Each slide on its own page.

With a bit more care, this could be good enough?

sure, it works it would be fine, but can you tell me please what you did exactly, what you clicked and dragged after loading the file, as I really have no clue?

thanks!

Perhaps easier to find an alternative that reads your PDF correctly...

Try: https://sites.google...om/site/pdfscissors/

Though it uses Java which seems to have crazy strict security these days.

Or http://scantailor.org which seems very comprehensive.
