Hi

I read a lot of academic articles. Many of them have always the same layout, e.G. "Journal blablabla" has always two columns precisely positionned at the same location.
It would be incredibly useful to be able to load "predefined crop rectangles for the Journal blablabla". I mean : crop the rectangle 1 at (X1,Y1)-(X1',Y1') centimeters from the top left, then rectangle 2 at (X2,Y2)-(X2',Y2')... Briss could read these values in a text file (In a later version : enter the values in the briss interface / Define it manually ?)

It would be especially interesting if you can batch the process... (Crop these n files that are from "Journal blablabla" in this directory) In the academic world, people often have hundreds of PDF files of the same layout.

Simple. No algorithm is needed.
What do you think ?

Congratulations for this great software !

  • This is quite similar to #32, and I could be willing to supply a patch to get this on the way.
