Thanks billon. I now tested all the PDF tools included in PDF Shaper:

PDFShaper.exe: no settings

Extract Text: none
Extract Images: none
PDF to Image: none
Image to PDF: none
PDF to RTF (PDFtoRTF.exe): PDFShaper.ini in \user\current\AppData\Roaming
Split PDF: none
Merge PDFs: none
Encrypt PDF(PDFTools.exe): none

PDF to RTF is the only tool to save settings in AppData.

Thanks, I also got only the ini file but haven't tested all the tools. All 3 glorylogic apps behaves the same (ISO Workshop, Image Tuner).

So v5.1 is out with some odd changes ... you might not want to update:

http://www.softpedia.com/progChangelog/ ... 32493.html

PDF to Word removed while Word to PDF has been added. Weird.

Would really like to have a PDF cropping tool on the site since that's maybe the most common thing I do to PDF files aside from deleting blank pages. Can we accept this as sort of conditionally portable or with some kind of disclaimer?

Just a note that I had to delete the other LNG files to make it show up in English. So 3 files:

Code:
Hungarian.lng
Russian.lng
Dutch.lng

License note: It's listed as freeware on softpedia but according to the program internals and the homepage, it's free for non-commercial use only. That's a little weird as it seems to use Ghostscript (GPL) but whatever. I was actually testing this in a commercial environment before I figured that out so this analysis is only partially complete as I had to delete it.

Component tests

  • The Word to PDF converter seemed to work well but choked on an old DOC file (I think it's 97 or 2003 format).
  • The fairly basic crop tool (cropping by section and number e.g. lower right by 4x4 inches) seemed to work well but it's preview tool doesn't seem to function.
  • The text extractor worked remarkably well in maintaining the formatting in basic text (there is an option to skip any semblance of formatting), but doesn't appear to work in a batch format like most of the other tools.
  • It can remove/replace some metadata but I wondered if it zapped all of it or just the 6 fields it covered (author, subject, creator, producer, title, and keywords).

Just tested and seeing that same prompt, even with UniExtract 2.

EDIT: v.5.2 available here but I cannot verify the source as 100% so please check the contents.
