Hi Jean-Luc Mittner.
- Since we can define the source PDFs (or a whole directory) on the command line, a switch (like /out=) would be very useful to be able to define the target PDF (or directory) using the macros already defined.
Sure, we can add the something like "out=" option in the future.
- Likewise it would be very useful to be able to define on the commande line the parameters used by the crop, resize, extract and split/merge tools (in pt and mm, at least, for the first two). Even if all parameters cannot be defined on the command line, the possibility of defining the main ones would be a significant advantage.
Not sure that is good idea, because many action has huge amount of options and there is difficult to say which of them are main or not, and some of them can be main just for you but not for other peoples. May be in the future we will add possibility to specify in command line the special file file with additional tool's options (probably in JSON format), but currently it is not high-priority task, I guess.
(2) One additional tool which would be very useful, would be a structural info tool, providing the parameters of the mediabox, cropbox, rotation, number of pages and, possibly, the page labels, all in a text format easy to parse (ini type file, for instance)
May be I'm wrong but it looks like very special feature you need that cannot be used by most regular users. If you are developer - you may use our Editor SDK
as well to do anything with pdf.
(3) Lastly, another tool would be very useful: one that would allow the production of a 2-up and booklet version of a PDF from the command line. To be precise, for instance, given a 28-page A5 portrait pdf, I would like to be able to produce two 14-page A4 landscape pdfs:
Yes, that is good idea, thanks. We planning to implement it in the future too.
