Re: [Feature request] Rename file function to separate file name and extension

I also like this implementation. I wonder why the ".pdf" extension couldn't simply be left out completely, because nobody would normally rename a PDF file's extension to something else than PDF, let alone from within the PDF application. https://i.imgur.com/VxoCS5Y.png Best regards David

Re: "select comments" and "paste" results in a jumbled mess

Hello all,

Has the orientation/offset of the documents/pages in question already been reset? If not, I'd suggest trying this. It normally prevents things like the present issue from happening, at least if the page sizes are not (too) different.
