And finally, we are updating our How to split PDF and merge PDF tutorials with the new settings and features we added in the latest releases, they will be ready in few days, and we added a short one to explain how to compress PDF using PDFsam Basic, give them a chance if you need a quick guide on how to use PDFsam.

We just released PDFsam Basic 3.3.0!

We released the new PDFsam Basic version 3.3.0 where we upgraded our PDF engine (SAMBox + Sejda) to the latest version with a lot of fixes and improvements, we added pages selection to the Alternate Mix module, we added an option to normalize pages size to the Merge module… and a number of smaller changes and fixes you can see here.
Enjoy!

PDFsam Basic 3.2.5 is out!

We released the new PDFsam Basic version 3.2.5 where you will have a reduced startup time, some new MSI property to drive the corresponding application setting during silent install, updated SAMBox and Sejda (our PDF layer) with a number of fixes, premium modules in the modules dashboard.
Enjoy!

PDFsam Basic 3.2.2

Ehm.. we broke something in 3.2.1 and translations aren’t working, we just released a fix, sorry for that.

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
  • Some bug fixes
  • 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.
Enjoy

PDFsam 3.0.3 released!

Hi, the new version 3.0.3 of PDFsam Basic is out! We finally added the .deb archive for Linux distributions, drag and drop of rows in the merge task selection table so you can now easily sort rows, added an option to discard bookmarks in split tasks and one to add the file name in the footer of the merged document pages. ToC generated for the merge task now has the same page size as the merged documents. Last but not least we upgraded SAMBox and Sejda so there are many fixes on the underlying PDF engine.
You can get it from here
Enjoy!

PDFsam 3.0.2 released!

We just released version 3.0.2 where you will find some nice improvement. You can now tell the merge task to create a table of contents with a clickable list of merged PDF documents; the PDF engine has been upgraded and now, when you split PDFs, results documents are optimized and in some case they will be way smaller then before; we performed some user interface adjustments that users suggested; you can now turn off the notification that asks for a donation and finally you can save a workspace on exit and load one passing it as a command line argument to PDFsam.
