Projects / gpdftext


gPDFText is a text editor that opens PDF documents for ebook readers, converts the text contents into plain ASCII text, restores the original paragraphs, and removes unwanted line breaks to allow easier zooming on the reader. The text is loaded into a text editor with spell-checking support and can then be saved as a reformatted PDF in A5, B5, or original A4 size.
