Create Songbook PDF with Title Page, clickable Table-of-Contents and PDF-Bookmarks

Postby musikai » Wed Mar 25, 2015 1:15 am

Hi,

For those of you who want to create a Songbook PDF with Title Page, clickable Table-of-Contents and PDF-Bookmarks out of multiple single PDF music scores have a look on my free solution:

LibreOfficePDFtk (LOPDFtk)
http://struckkai.blogspot.de/?view=classic

LibreOfficePDFtk (LOPDFtk) is a LibreOffice/OpenOffice Document with embedded Macro and Toolbar that uses the free command-line tool PDFtk from PDF-Labs (https://www.pdflabs.com/) to merge and assemble multiple PDF-files to create a PDF with page numbers, clickable Table-of-Contents (TOC) and PDF-Bookmarks in an easy and comfortable way. Being a LibreOffice document it provides full control over page-layout.

Hi,
Now I'm proud to be able to present my new free finished project, which may be of special interest for Sibelius users.
It's the successor of LOPDFtk with the following features:

Import folders of scores in image format and automatically create "invisible" headings from foldernames that show up only in the Table-of-Contents and as PDF-Bookmarks.

Import PDF-files and automatically create "invisible" headings from filenames as placemarkers that show up only in the Table-of-Contents and as PDF-Bookmarks. Automatically merge these PDF-files into the final PDF. (needs PDFtk)

Easily insert "invisible" subheadings for any PDF-page or imagescore-page that show up only in the Table-of-Contents and as PDF-Bookmarks.

Convert PDFs to svg-image format. Either on import or when already present in the document. (needs Inkscape or Poppler)

Insert multiple illustrations in image format in one go with:
Automatic optimization of svg-illustrations exported by Sibelius. (Correction of viewbox, deleting unused stuff, reducing file size)

replaced "PDFlist" with "SourceList":
Gives you a structured list of all the content in the "source"-folder that is used in your document.

Replaced PicOsize and PicOsizeAll Buttons with:
PicTool
PicTool is now complete. Ultimative tool.

Set independently Size, Cropping, Anchor, Alignment, TextWrap of a single selected image, all images within a selection or all images (if nothing selected). Images can be filtered by name and skipped by repeated pattern: 1 means "do", 0 or any other number "skip". For example 001 means only process every 3rd image. Images can also be resized only down or only up to new Size by using "up/down"-CheckBoxes. For example "down" means only scale down images that are greater than the new Size.
