It helps the user to decide what should be cropped by creating a overlay of similar pages (=>all pages within a p df having the same size, orientation(even/odd)). ######################## General ######################## * Homepage : http://sourceforge.net/projects/briss/ * License: GPLv3 * Author: Gerhard Aigner (gerhard.aigner@gmail.com * Requirements: Java 6 * Operating systems: Windows, Linux, MacOSX * This software uses two libraries to render and crop PDF files: * itext (AGPLv3) http://itextpdf.com/ * jpedal (LGPL) http://www.jpedal.org/ ######################## Starting the application ######################## You can run the application by executing following command in terminal: java -jar briss-0.0.13.jar or java -jar briss-0.0.13.jar cropthis.pdf (The second line comes in handy if you want shortlinks for pdf editing) ######################## Commandline ######################## If you prefer command line and trust the basic automatic detection algorithm use it this way (can be batched!):

java -jar briss-0.0.13.jar -s [SOURCEFILE] [-d [DESTINATIONFILE]] Example: java -jar briss-0.0.13.jar -s dogeatdog.pdf -d dogcrop.pdf java -jar briss-0.0.13.jar -s dogeatdog.pdf the second line will create the cropped pdf into dogeatdog_cropped.pdf

######################## Instructions ######################## 1) Load a pdf by pressing "Load" 2) Create multiple crop rectangles for all page cluster: Each crop rectangle wil l result in a cropped page. 2.1) Press the left mouse button on a corner where you want to start 2.2) Draw the rectangle 2.3) Release the mouse button * [OPTIONAL] Drag around crop rectangles (press and hold mouse button down) * [OPTIONAL] Set width/height to maximum: Select the crop rectangles by holding down CTRL + left click into rectangle to select. All crop rectangles will be resized to the biggest one, either on width or height. 3) Start the cropping by pressing "Crop" or preview and specify the destination of the cropped pdf. [OPTIONAL FEATURES] * Select a Rectangle with ctrl + mouse click. Then copy (ctrl-c) and paste it in to another cluster. * Use hotcorners to make a crop rectangle smaller or bigger ######################## Problems ######################## * If you want to crop really big files it might be necessary to start briss with an additional parameter: "-Xms128m -Xmx1024m" (complete call would look like: "java -Xms128m -Xmx1024m -jar briss-0.0.11.jar") * At the moment Briss can't deal with JP2000 Images.
