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.

Hello, people.

Tip from the penniless editor Laughing

I've perused some of the above suggestions, but the following is the best
no-cost (aka free or freeware) solution I've found so far:

* split your PDF in separate pages (a technique also known as "burst")
with pdfsam -- in its own folder
* install the most recent version of the PDF extension in Open/Libre Office
* edit your doc page by page in Open/Libre Office
* export your edited page as a pdf under a slightly different name
* once you've finished editing all your pages, use the "merge" function in
pdfsam to reconstitute your edited pdf pages into a complete document.

The above works reasonably well if you only need to edit lines, for touch-
ups, because in this context, the OpenOffice extension allows you to work
your text line by line. If you try to edit more than one line at a time with
this OO extension, you'll likely create a mess...

For long sentences, paragraphs and/or more extensive edits, it will always
be a lot easier for you if your client can send you the original *.doc
document to work on. Working with the entire document in Open Office,
you can use the follow-up function (or not), and edit your text as you
ordinarily do with all the OO features at your finger tips.

You simply export your entire edited document as a PDF file once you've
finished (again, under a slightly different filename).

I hope this helps someone. BFN.

It's like what real-life publishing used to be 30 years ago:

on the galleys (the PDF file being the modern equivalent), you only edited
the few remaining typos; the writers strived to make the text coming out
of the Wang Word Processor as error-free as possible. You didn't edit on
screen then, you printed your article triple-spaced and edited it on paper.

I remember that for a particular magazine, we were three editors in a
row reading and editing the whole content one after another, each of us
having a pencil of a different color. The secretary then introduced the
colored changes in the document file, and only after that was done, was
the corrected content sent to the type-setter ("Barb", not to name her)! Wink

And there were still 5-6 typos left in the printed mag -- against a total of
+/- 30,000 words per issue, mind you...

My point here is: edit 3-4-5 times (don't be shy!) in the word-processor
document. Don't even try to do any substantial editing in the PDF file, it's
counter-productive; edit only the glaring errors in your PDF.

Whenever I have to populate a PDF form I use Xournal. It's included in FatDog.

Cheers

not much help if your on slacko ; -)

In the pdfshuffler sub folder from here https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B4MbXu8cvE_WRVE4Y0FlZUgzcTg&usp=sharing there's a version of pdfshuffler that works ok under Slacko 5.3.3 (all in a single SFS). poppler (PDF rendering) pet may also be required (also in that directory), but I personally found that not necessary if you have evince (pdf viewer) installed (and poppler seems to cause conflicts/problems if its loaded in addition to evince).

MasterPDFeditor, a Qt commercial product, but the Linux-based version is free for non-commercial use.

Does the current version of masterpdfeditor still make the pdf fonts ugly?

Don't look to bad, though the "i" can get a little close to the letters on the right of it at different zoom levels.
