Another program I don't think I've mentioned, particularly for doing ocr on scanned pdfs, is the Windows freeware "pdf-xchange viewer", which apparently runs well in Wine.

I should mention:
1. pdf-xchange is full featured, but some features like merging pdfs and rearranging/deleting pages are a premium feature, so if you use these features without buying a license it adds a stamp to each page.
2. pdf-xchange is the best "free" option I've seen for editing pdf bookmarks (no, this isn't a premium feature).

Thanks disciple, I just gave that a quick try and it seems all good. It will be useful. Cheers!

Does anybody by any chance know of a Linux program to change the default view settings in a pdf e.g. change from |continuous view" to "single page" view, or "fit width" to "100%" or "fit page"?

I haven't tried it, but I think there's a good chance Softmaker's new "Flexipdf Basic" would run in Wine. This functionality is provided, albeit in a rather strange place: File>Preferences>Loading, in the bottom section.

Even aside from this, if you ever have to run Windows (where it is a bit of work to use several of the good linux programs like pdfshuffler and pdfmod), Flexipdf Basic is worth having around alongside pdfsam and pdf-xchange.

Another program enthusiasts might find useful:
Quote:
Extract PDFmark can extract page mode and named destinations as PDFmark from PDF

Usage:
Code:
$ extractpdfmark TeX-System-Outputted.pdf > Extracted-PDFmark.ps
$ gs -q -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dPDFDontUseFontObjectNum \
     -sOutputFile=Final.pdf TeX-System-Outputted.pdf Extracted-PDFmark.ps

http://www.willus.com/k2pdfopt/pdf_conversion.shtml
A page with links to a bunch of pdf related tools, particularly for making pdfs more usable on ereaders etc.
Probably not much new there unless you are interested in the ereader type stuff.

Just a comment on compressing pdfs (generated ones, probably not scanned ones): I have found that using the compression option in tools like qpdf or pdftk often makes the files a bit bigger (as well as often deleting bookmarks etc)! The best tool for this (and many other things) is pdfsam - e.g. use the merge option and select the options to compress the output file, and to keep the existing bookmarks.

Also note that if you stick to the free versions of pdfsam you may want to use the current generation for some tasks, due to new capabilities, and the previous generation (which incidentally didn't suffer from the rubbish gui font blurring!) for the "visual reorder feature", if pdfshuffler, pdfmod, flexipdf etc aren't giving you good results.

This has a nice simple gui (unfortunately gtk3) if you're looking to do simple booklet / n-up stuff... it will of course have the same problems on some pdfs as other tools using pypdf.

Bookletimposer is an utility to achieve some basic imposition on PDF documents, especially designed to work on booklets.

Bookletimposer is implemented as a commandline and GTK+ interface to pdfimposer, a reusable python module built on top of pyPdf2.

Here is another "free" viewer that might be worth checking out if you are after something with similar capabilities to the Windows Adobe Reader:
https://www.qoppa.com/pdfstudioviewer/
No nice crisp aliased fonts though Sad
Cross-platform (Java) and relatively huge...
Ability to create annotations is supposed to be coming this April or May, so you may want to hold off until then.

In terms of more complex booklet / n-up stuff, I previously mentioned PDF bookbinder and pdfbooklet at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=61579, but I think not in this thread.
Pdfbooklet is also using Pypdf2, while bookbinder is Java.
