PDFsam Basic 3.3.4 fixing Java 9 compatibility

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.

Merge PDF with PDFsam v3

Hi everybody,
today PDFsam v3 performed its very first task merging pdf files.

There’s still quite a lot of work to do but I wanted to share the good news, the merge pdf module of PDFsam v3 kind of works and it’s going to be the first one to be finalized. I still don’t have any bundle for you to test and I don’t know yet when I will, but things are moving, I have screen shots to prove it 🙂

Progress indicator

Progress indicator
I just finished to build the progress indicator I’ll most probably use in PDFsam v3 to display task progress for pdf merge, split etc. It’s a JavaFX control and, since it can be reused, I created a separated repository for it so people can clone it and do whatever they want with it. Here on GitHub.

Translations for PDFsam v3

Hi everybody,
I uploaded the new translations template for PDFsam v3 here, it’s obviously not complete since development is still going on but I’ll keep it updated. If you want to help and start translating you are more than welcome.

A tailored user interface

Settings screenHi guys,
as you know I’m working on v3.0.0 and I’m currently working on the user interface. I created a forum post where I attached some screen, I’d like to discuss the UI with you… after all it’s you who is going to split and merge pdf documents with pdfsam and you are probably the best source of ideas and experience.

Baby steps

Hi all,
I just want to show you I’m not as lazy as it might seem 🙂
Ok I know a lot of stuff is missing but still.. baby steps.
