@Emka - The first item under OPTIONS look like you can set the utility to delete the jpgs when you exit the program. I have never been very sure the program actually does what it says, so I simply use the second item in OPTIONS to check and delete as necessary. Periodically I use the jpg instead the pdf so I actually find this useful. Bottom line is that I wish the author would clean all this up a bit more, but I find the utility so useful (use it every day almost) that I am prepared to work around the idiosyncrasies.

@MIKLO & _philippe: It now seems possible to select a folder for temporary files, so you can change the default location in AppData to the app's folder for example.

Well this has been here a very long time, this program has worked fine for my uses.I was looking for an older version from the website I found in Japanese, the problem was many of the Japanese words are spelled wrong which changes the meaning. :D

Useful small footprint PDF splitting tool.

Only would wish for slightly more specific changelogs, beside the usual, non-descript
"fixed some bugs"...;-)

@ Joe: Thanks ... and updated ;)

libiconv2.dll does not seem to in setup. Works without it.

Cornflower on 2020-10-14 10:44

Works in Windows 10, but noticed recently that it creates a folder in the temp location
%TEMP%\pdftkb

I haven't found any files created in that location, observing it during a few tests; it is just an empty folder., so PDFTK Builder is not completely stealth in Windows 10 (still my favourite PDF utility since 2003)
