Published for


krop is a simple graphical tool to crop the pages of PDF files. It is written in Python and relies on PyQT, python-poppler-qt4 and pyPDF for its functionality. A unique feature of krop is its ability to automatically split pages into subpages to fit the limited screen size of devices such as eReaders. This is particularly useful, if your eReader does not support convenient scrolling.

This software was written by Armin Straub and packaged as Linux snap app by Carlos Gomes. This software is sand-boxed with the confinement strict, meaning can only access your home directory & removable media to read/write the pdf files.

Armin has also debian and gentoo packages available on this website.
