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.
