Pdfcropobrez is a tool which converts pdf file(s) into a cropped pdf file(s) and splits pages into two parts to be optimized for mobile devices.

And of course Sejda which is to be the new engine for pdfsam, and currently has a command line interface I think.

PdfCropGUI - uses poppler-qt, and pdflatex, which seems an odd approach.

Hmmm.
Masterpdfeditor is "free for personal use" on Linux and provides a nice gui for editing the content of PDFs (although its drag-and-drop support is a bit limited for document assembly, compared to something like pdfshuffler). But on the first pdf I tried, it somehow uglified the font (Calibri). Its as if it's stripped the hinting information from the font and reembedded it, or something.

PDF Shuffler

For anyone that's interested, PDF Shuffler downloads and installs perfectly with dependencies in Barry's new Quirky Tahr distro using the Quirky Package Manager.

Best,

Another specialist program for cropping pdfs: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/krop/
And I saw a mention that pdfshuffler now supports pypdf2, which supports a lot more real world pdfs.

The same as what? Pdfshuffler? Krop?
I think it provided some of the same function.ality, but it isn't a drop in replacement

Hi disciple - firstly the masterpdfeditor that you linked here seems quite advanced and works well for me on my Slacko 5.6 derivative. I shall investigate it further.
Secondly - the links in the first post seem dead. Any chance of relivening them? This thread has lots of useful links for various pdf requirements.
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"?

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 realise it is probably too late now, but re the requests for reuploading the .sfs, I wasn't able to find a copy of it when you asked, but I'm sure I've got one somewhere, so I will do so if I ever find it.
