6 great new features!

Lev R.:
I suggest adding the following functions to the program:

1) Deskew (for image pdf)

2) Conversion of colors (for image pdf):
- black and white ( best in leptonica libraries)
- grayscale
- full color

3) Convert text to image PDF ( curve fonts)

4) Change page size (A4,А3,А2 etc)

5) Numbering pages (pagination)

6) Send the  pdf file to the program-compressor
These compressors do not support the command line:( but PDF-ShellTools script will help fix it))

Sorry for bad english, i use Google Translator

Definitively. I intend to add automatic deskew to the rotate pages tool. Doing it manually, if you know the angle, is already possible.

Take a look to the optimize images tool.

Not a very good practice, and only useful for very specific scenarios needed by users that already have access to tools that can do this.

No specific tool available, but it can be done using the scripts API. I will try to include a sample script to do this in the next release.

The stamp tool has a dynamic text constant exactly for this.

If there is no command line, nor COM automation, how do you command these tools from a script?

In regards to rotate.. It would be awesome if the rotate function had parameters.
Like, Rotate only Portrait or Landscape pages.

RTT:
Maybe making "Portrait" and "Landscape" page selector keywords... :-\
