Split and merge pdf documents, it's free, open source and platform independent.

Pdf Merge for Android

Hi guys,
I just published a free and super simple tool for Android devices to merge pdf documents. It doesn’t have may options, just the three steps select/sort/merge but it does the job on your smartphone or tablet. It’s powered by Sejda and PDFBox and it’s available on Google Play and on Amazon.
You can find more info here.

Any feedback is always welcome… as long as it’s a good one :D
Enjoy

PdfToJpg added to Sejda

Hi guys,
as you probably know I spent the past two years working (among the others) on Sejda. In few words it’s a Java library and it will become the core pdf manipulation library in PDF Split And Merge v3.x. It currently has two interfaces, a command line interface that can replace the pdfsam-console and a web interface where you can merge pdf, split pdf, etc without any download needed.
That said, we just added a PdfToJpg task to Sejda and, together with the PdfToTiff are two of the new features that PDFsam v3 will have. If you want to try them out, any feedback is welcome.
Enjoy!

Mac OS X “PDFsam is damaged and can’t be opened”

Hi Mac users,
some of you reported the “PDFsam is damaged and can’t be opened” error when trying to install the PDF Split And Merge dmg package. After some investigation and users feedback I can finally write what is causing that. The issue is caused by a new feature of Mountain Lion and OS X Lion v10.7.5, called Gatekeeper which “help protect your Mac from malware and misbehaving apps downloaded from the Internet”. It does that by preventing you from launching apps that are not downloaded from the Mac App Store which is “The safest and most reliable place to download and install apps”. Now, assuming you still want to install PDF Split And Merge even if you didn’t download it from the “safest and most reliable place”, what can you do? As sorice pointed out you have to:

  • Open Gatekeeper settings located in “System Preferences > Security & Privacy”
  • Set “Allow applications downloaded from:” to “Anywhere” and confirm by pressing “Allow From Anywhere”
  • Launch Pdf Split And Merge
  • Once PDF Split And Merge is successfully launched, you can set back Gatekeeper option to whatever you want

Pdf merge page selection

Pdf merge page selection

Pdf merge page selection

Hi, here is a simple tip to remind you how page selection works. When merging pdf files you’ll often need to merge only a subset of the document (a chapter, some pages..). PDFsam supports page selection in the form of comma separated values where they can be single pages or page ranges. Page numbers cannot be duplicated and page ranges cannot intersect, a page range with open end is also supported (Ex. 10- means from page ten untill the end of the document). To set the selection on a pdf input document you want to merge, you can double click the page selection cell and input some valid page range.
Examples of valid page selections:
2,4,7-20,25-
10,6,30-35
Examples of invalid page selections:
2,2,4,5-20
2-10,5-15

Finally, new release!

Hello guys,
I finally found some time to release the new version of PDFsam. I want to apologize for the long delay but, as some of you may know, I worked hard on a couple of other projects (What A Cult and Sejda) in the past year and PDFsam was left a bit behind. Release 3 is not coming out any time soon so I decided to release version 2.2.2 with fixes to some of the most annoying bugs. Among the others:

  • Windows msi installation package supporting silent installation
  • New pdfsam-starter.exe and finally no more “javaw.exe not found” error message
  • Confirmation sounds are now working on Java 7
  • No more “invisible GUI” and crappy “delete gui-config.xml” workaround
  • Upgraded thumbnails generation libraries and langpack

As usual the new version can be downloaded here.
Please report back if you find any issue.
Enjoy

Currently only the PDFsam enhanced version has been ported to MSI installer but with the next release (in about a month) PDFsam basic will have it too. Please report if you find any bug.

Plan for the future

Hi everybody,
first of all merry Christmas :)
I decided to write this post to keep you informed about the plan for the next release of PDFsam. After some thoughts I decided to rewrite PDFsam for the same reasons why me and Eduard developed Sejda completely rewriting the pdfsam-console. Here is a short list of the changes you can expect in the next release:

  • I’ll move the source code from SVN to Mercurial, most probably on BitBucket where I already have some project and I’m very happy with it.
  • I’ll mavenize the project to make it easier for developers to contribute and because I can’t stand those huge Ant scripts anymore.
  • Unattended installation
  • No more .pdfsam directory to store preferences
  • Sejda as core manipulation library which means a couple of new plugins (TIFF conversion, text extraction..) and some minor improvement to the existing ones.
  • I’ll most probably use some OSGi framework to improve modularity and it seems to perfectly replace the current plugin system. I’m still investigating this.
  • Finally a completely new layout. Someone once told PDFsam looks like a Ferrari engine on a old Lada chassis.. well, I agree and I’ll try to make it simpler, more usable and good looking.

It’s going to take a while but I hope the final result will be a pleasant surprise for most of you.

Andrea
