jPDF Tweak

This program requires Java 5 or higher. Download it from
Start it by double clicking the jar file, or by
java -jar jpdftweak.jar
For the command line options, add -help to the command line above.
If you have the compact version and have problems, you might try
if they are present in the "normal" version as well.
See the "manual" folder for short manual.
Java Memory Limit
By default, a Java program may only access up to 64 MB of RAM. When
processing large PDFs, this can cause out of memory errors.
You can increase the memory that will be used by jPDF Tweak by editing
the jpdftweak.bat file with a text editor; change
@java -jar jpdftweak.jar %*
to for example
@java -Xmx256M -jar jpdftweak.jar %*
to allow for 256 MB of RAM. Alternatively, if you want to perform lots
of operations, you can check the "Use temporary files" option on the
Output tab.

* As the program got quite stable, this is the first version that
is no longer beta but a release candidate.

* Due to changes in licensing of the PDF library used by jPDF Tweak
(iText), the license of the current version changed to GNU Affero
General Public License version 3 (AGPLv3+). If you know a good reason
why to create a separate branch that stays GPLv2+ and uses the old
version of iText, write me - maybe you can convince me.
