PDFsam Basic 3.3.5 released!

We just released PDFsam Basic version 3.3.5 where we update the language pack, the PDF engine (Sejda) with a number of bug fixes and improvements and the Open button to directly open the generated PDF file (and not the containing directory) in case the task generates a single PDF file.

PDFsam Basic 3.3.4 fixing Java 9 compatibility

Hi,
there was a compatibility issue with PDFsam Basic version 3.3.3 (and below) that was preventing it to start with Java 9. We just released PDFsam Basic 3.3.4 and with that everything should be back to normal and work as expected even if you upgrade to Java 9. We also added handy row headers to easily find the index of the added PDF files and the total number of added PDF files.

PDFsam Basic 3.2.1 released!

We just released the juicy new version 3.2.1 of PDFsam Basic where you can find:

  • Alternate Mix now can mix multiple PDF files (and not just two)
  • Extract pages now can batch extract working on multiple PDF files (and not just one)
  • Added context menu integration to Windows and Linux so you can now right click PDF files and send to PDFsam Basic
  • Run button and few others in the dialog windows are now the default buttons so Enter key should trigger them
  • Important news are now shown once as a notification

  • Upgraded Sejda with a lot of fixes and optimizations

Here is the list of what is included and here where you can download it. Enjoy!

Next Basic release enhancements

In the next release you’ll find a couple of enhancements to make you more productive with PDFsam. Run button is set as default so now you can set your parameters and hit the Enter key to start the task. We added Windows and Ubuntu context menu so you will be able to right click on PDF documents and Open with or Send to PDFsam Basic.

Simplified user interface

In order to simplify the user interface, I am thinking about removing the output PDF version combobox and the compression checkbox, so generated document will always be PDF 1.5 with xref stream and object streams. I was thinking about having a sort of fallback way to allow uncompressed output, in case there are use-cases where uncompressed output makes sense, which I can’t currently foresee. Any feedback on this regard is more then welcome.

PDFsam 3.1.0 is out

PDFsam Basic 3.1.0 has been released today. You will find the new PDF Extract module, page selection in the PDF Rotate module, an upgrade to our PDF engine with bugfixes and performance improvements, and finally you can now use PDF files generated by one module, as input for another one with just one click.
