This is a pretty good PDF reader / editor but I notice it opens larger documents quite a bit slower than your standard PDF reader in Puppy. I notice it has a signature option, though I haven't taken the time to figure it out.

That's more for larger organisations, where individuals have secure digital signatures and authors can submit a document for approval or registration usually with limited edit/change options available for others. i.e. a document approver might approve the document by attaching their digital signature.

For a simple signature (name), just create one in a image program and drop (insert image) that at the relevant position.

Attachments are a useful feature, i.e. document a spreadsheet and perhaps include a few charts in the document, and in the attachments include perhaps a spreadsheet of the source data.

I'm getting a small problem again now
When trying to start it it does this
Code:
 ./masterpdfeditor
# ./masterpdfeditor3
./masterpdfeditor3: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libQtNetwork.so.4: undefined symbol: _ZN16QIODevicePrivate4peekEPcx
#
[quote]

Now thats a bit weird as this same symbol is also not found by the program                            So I'm trying to work out whats interfering in the QT library which is loaded by .sfs file?

Thanks. Great.

Loads/works fine under Tahr 6.0.2 (with 6.0.3 update)

The default helvetica font for text throws out a error message, and updates are set to weekly. I extracted the sfs and remade with those set to a more common puppy font (Deja Vu Sans Book) and updates 'never'

Those changes result in a /root/,config/Code Industry/Master PDF Editor.conf content of :

Masterpdfeditor is great for formatting a document. Resize text by dragging, adding circles, freehand ... even including other pdf's/docs as attachments. But lacks a spell check.

Use the method as described here http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=879699#879699 and you can concentrate on the words first (in leafpad), spell check those words, then cut/paste into masterpdfeditor to arrange the words as you like.

That's quite a nice way to work. 1. Focus solely upon the words/wording first, 2. Solely focus upon correcting spelling mistakes. 3. Solely focus upon the layout/format of the words. With wysiwyg word processors you tend to do all three simultaneously rather than linearly, and such multi-tasking can lead to document content errors slipping through unnoticed.

I'm no good with double/treble negatives, is master pdfeditor free for use or not under Linux?

PostPosted: Sun 03 Jan 2016, 08:20    Post subject:  Master PDF Editor Forms
Subject description: How to create/use a PDF form element
 

For this you'll need a full Acrobat Reader. I have a sfs stored here that also seems to work OK under tahr 6.0.5
https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B4MbXu8cvE_WRVE4Y0FlZUgzcTg&usp=sharing

Uncompress the attached test.pdf.gz file, open masterpdfeditor drag that test.pdf file into the masterpdfeditor window (to open it).

That pdf has a test.sh file attached, so open the attachment frame (far left) select the test.sh script, right mouse click and save that to /root. Then make that /root/test.sh script excutable (in rox, right click the test.sh file and select permissions).

That script just runs rxvt i.e. opens a terminal window, however the pdf also has a button where the button is associated to that /root/test.sh script. With the masterpdfedtitor arrow (select) option activated (far left, three rows below the FILE menu option in my installation), click the button and then open the object inspector (far right of screen). You can use the options available in that inspector to do a whole range of things.

If you open that test.pdf with acrobat reader, then you'll be able to click the button and it will open a terminal (rxvt) window.

The above is just a quick intro into how to use forms/form elements within materpdfeditor. You can add images, list boxes ... all sorts of things to make a pdf much more interactive.

Note that if you drag the pdf to firefox then it will (usually) prompt that its disabled forms. Evince also doesn't support forms as far as I am aware. Hence you need a forms supporting pdf viewer (such as acrobat reader) for the forms to work.

i think not-registered-application is a single unit consisting of the application you didn't register. Laughing i think you're fine if you're not betraying what's underlined, and i think if you're using the linux version, no one comes to your home to carve a mark of shame into your forehead.

this is my understanding of it. i think you're okay. the mark thing's the only drawback, and you're exempt from suffering if you're with the penguin.

Thanks Puppus Dogfellow.

3.5.81 running really well on my system. Loads even 4.5MB+ pdf much quicker than the earlier version. And displaying much better some pdf's that weren't so clear with the earlier version.

Geoffrey, just dropped the masterpdfeditor sfs into a newly installed Tahr64 ... and worked straight off (looks like tahr64 already had the required qt libs).

Hi masterlord,

Geoffrey's SFS, available here, http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=865020#865020 should work under Xenialpup64. As that post suggests, you'll need Qt 5 libs. Just open puppy package manager and enter the following into its search box:

libsane
libQt5PrintSupport
libQt5Svg
libQt5Widgets
libQt5Network
libQt5Gui
libQt5Core

You can save some time if you start by selecting libQt5PrintSupport and set PPM to download (but not install) it and dependencies into a previously empty folder. I think that that instruction will download all the above. But you can check the folder, then download any which are missing.

Then just left-click the debs you downloaded and they will be installed.

The reason I bolded "should" is that I don't use Geoffrey's SFS. I downloaded masterpdfeditor from its publisher, unpacked the archive to a folder on my /mnt/home and run it from there. The listed libs are the Qt5 libraries that setup needed to run.
