gpdftext(1) is a GTK+ text editor for ebook PDF files.




This manual page documents briefly the gpdftext package. For more information on gpdftext, see the gPDFText Manual:

$ yelp ghelp:gpdftext

gpdftext is a GTK+ text editor for ebook PDF files.

gpdftext loads the PDF, extracts the text, reformats the paragraphs into single long lines and then puts the text into a standard GTK+ editor where you can make other adjustments.

On the ebook reader, the plain text file then has no unwanted line breaks and can be zoomed to whatever text size you prefer.


There are no command-line options supported currently.

PDF files passed on the command line will be opened by gpdftext.


Please use the Debian BTS or the upstream Trac tickets.
