Description Saurabh Singhvi 2005-09-05 10:35:07 UTC
PDF Bookmarks provide a tree structure allowing you to jump to any part of the
document with ease. extendedPDF allows you to create these PDF bookmarks
directly from your existing document styles, with total flexibility. No extra
work for you and a much better experience for your readers!

extendedPDF also converts hyperlinks to PDF hyperlinks, so that links work the
same in your document and your PDF document.

Allow reviewers to read and add to the notes that you made on the
original! extendedPDF can convert Notes to PDF Note Annotations.
These can be read in both Acrobat Reader and Acrobat, and can be edited in Acrobat.

Reproducible: Always

I've looked shortly at the program and it seems that it is rather awkward to
install. If someone comes up with a proper working ebuild, I'm willing to
consider it.
Comment 2 Andreas Proschofsky (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-05 14:32:04 UTC
I don't think we should take this, starting with 2.0 the default way to install
it is through the package manager in OOo directly, which is fairly
straightforward and in my opinion the right way to do this. (quite similar to
extensions in Firefox or the way we install dictionaries now). Still as Paul
already said, if someone comes up with a proper ebuild...
Comment 3 Andreas Proschofsky (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-23 23:48:28 UTC
Ok, closing this, see the comments above for the reasons, please reopen if you
have an ebuild which works, then we might reconsider
