New web page (since 2018, I think). The old one is defunct.

I did **not** test for portability.

Re: PDFtk is a command-line tool for working with PDFs

In fact, there are a few GUIs for pdftk. My favourite is pdftkBuilder (https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1066) by Angus Johnson, who has kept it up since 2004 or earlier to my first usage. Another is Dirk Paehl's GUI for pdftk (https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=17), though it...

Coherent PDF: cpdf and cpdfsqueeze

With version 2.3 (December 2019) Coherent has given its cpdf a non-commercial use license. I used cpdf commercially at work, and am glad I can use it at home not, too. cpdf is a PDF toolkit, capable of everything pdftk does, and much more. Examples include Merge PDF files together, or split them apa...

Re: Poll: This determines whether there would be a CLI database at all

I voted yes, but I could go either way, because.... I use a lot of CLIs, and some I no longer know where they came from (I haven't submitted much because either others have done so or I have not looked up the original source) A database would be nice, but ***BUT*** What has really been great for me ...

Re: [CLI Help] Tips and Tricks

I really like this, and the inclusion of Angle Brackets as a standard I totally agree with. Let me see if I understand the post by restating them in what I hope are lay terms, using the same examples. I tend to rewrite many of the CLI help documentation for my personal documentation file so that if ...

Re: Memento (quick note utility)

I'm glad you like it. It doesn't meet my needs, but in looking for a way to print from MemPad (http://portablefreeware.com/?id=889), I discovered Clip2Print which is a portable taskbar utility to print the clipboard contents. You may find it useful. I checked the links and download from this old for...

Re: Combine batch of images into a PDF

SwiftPDF does exactly what you want, I think. Despite its age, it works on Win 10. It defaults to 1 image per page, but you have some control over size by using page size and margins.

Re: What launcher programs are you using?

Famulus , by our own dmg , has remained #1 for about 4 years now. I prefer keywords to mice clicks or multiple files and Famulus is 3 portable files, the small .exe written in AHK, a config file, and the commands/shortcuts. I use Famulus a lot with CLI files, such as CMDOW , NirCmd , and Horst Scha...

Re: Simple Family Tree

Adding siblings requires a parent. I have added "Unknown father /surname/" and "unknown mother /surname/" in such cases as placeholders. Some other programs or sites do allow sibling addition and then automatically add the "unknown"s in themselves, but it amounts to just about the same thing. As far...

Re: Video player that has 10 secs back & forward buttons ?

Portable VLC does this. Try Shift-Arrow (left or right) to go back or forward 3 seconds, Alt-Arrow for 10 seconds, and Control-arrow for 1 minute. The hotkeys can be manipulated by going into the settings. Here is a whole bunch of hotkeys for VLC https://www.howtogeek.com/196371/master-vlc-with-thes...

Re: is there a sync program that let me select the files inside the folder?

Have you tried SyncExp? https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=605 I've used it for years, and I can include or exclude subdirectories, automatically choose files to ignore or delete, and choose one- or two-way syncing.
