PDFTK Free - PDF editor tool front-end

#1 Post by webfork » Fri Dec 26, 2014 5:01 pm

Synopsis: yet another front end for the excellent PDFTK command line program. I checked this out because it appeared to be by the command-line program's developers and more recently updated than some other front-ends.

Version: v2.02 tested on Win7x86

Setup: Run Uniextract, Launch {app}\bin\pdftkXp.exe

Test results: Inconclusive. Couldn't get the program to run properly. Just opens with a box advertising the $4 "pro" version. No features could be tested nor settings modified.

Leaving this in "Not Portable" for the time being.

My test results (not portable, but the saved settings are not that important):

To join 2 or more .pdf files just add them and hit Create PDF.
To extract pages, just write the desired page range in the Pages to Copy field.
Couldn't figure out how to extract all the pages from a file (burst mode).
Not very intuitive, true.
The upside is that the Pro version is only 4$.


Just for reference (and still personal favorites):

Sigh. One day I'll start listing the website along with the programs I test. Eventually.
