View Full Version : [kde] Okular is great, but....

I am a gnome user, but use many, many kde apps (amarok, kmymoney, etc.).

With Intrepid I got to try Okular, and it is almost everything I have been looking for as a replacement for Adobe Acrobat professional.

There is one big mistake, in my opinion. It does not have the ability to print annotations. Nor do the annotations appear when sharing the document with other software programs (google docs, acrobat, etc.) I hope this gets implemented!

Second, some other wishes:

would like to see a feature for merging and splitting .pdf docs.

Open and save in more formats (e.g. jpeg).

While not perfect, it is nice to see that someone is working on a good modern day, easy to use .pdf tool for linux. Congrats to the Okular developers.

Where is evince? They seem to be lagging.

As I dont have a printer or adobe, I cant check the first one, but the second one is certainly reproducible. You may post an idea on Ubuntu Brainstorm (http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com) or a wishlist bug at Launchpad (https://bugs.launchpad.net)

Don't worry, the features you are looking for will most certainly be implemented within the next 30 to 50 years.
