Do you get better results that way than just copying and pasting from your pdf viewer?


My PDF viewer does not allow copy/paste.
I commonly run PDFedit (lucid) then load a multiple page PDF file,
(like some physics technical article),
then export all text to outl.txt
then run LibreOffice Write and load the out.txt.
From there I can format it to suit my vision,
cut & cull and edit the portions I want for reference.

Oh, that's very primitive. Unless it actually does but the pdf is protected.

Ah.
You might also be interested in pdftotext with the improvements from pdfedit. It is normally distributed as part of a "pdfedit tools" package, although I don't think I've seen a .pet version.

PeasyPDF v2.3 can extract the text from a PDF document.

"easyPDF v2.3"

rcrsn51 is always a good advisor !
but, this time, "easyPDF v2.3" did not execute fully in Slacko Puppy 3.3.

I have Puppy 5.25 in a subdir.
I have Puppy Slacko in a subdir.
Both share data subdir.
I just reboot and select which ever I need.

You obviously have more experience than me.
Thanks for the try ! Rolling Eyes

I like the Foxit PDF editor best. It is a windows application but it is small and works great via wine.
