It never ceases to amaze us what creative ways people find to use our library. Unfortunately a lot of these are commercial ones we are not allowed to share with you. So I thought I would have a look around and see if I could find some examples using the Open Source version. Here is a selection…
Pdf Scissors is a cool program for cropping Pdf files so you can read them more easily in Pdf readers like a Kindle. http://www.pdfscissors.com/
PdfJumbler is a simple tool for shuffling Pdf files around. You can rearrange, merge and delete pages. http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfjumbler/
Pdf Annot is pretty nifty. You can use it to add audio and text annotations to Pdf files. http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfannot/
This is the coolest one though, purely because of what its used for: openSHA, a java-basedplatform for conducting Seismic Hazard Analysis. Earthquakes! http://www.opensha.org
Feel free to add any that you’ve found!
