#147 Display DJVU Meta-Informations Plugin: DjVu 1.0 Beta 3 1.4.0 enhancement Eugene Romanenko closed Sep 2, 2008 Oct 2, 2018 batchheizer

Lucide should be able to display meta-informations of a djvu-file. But the window "Display-Documentinformations" is always empty. These informations contain simple values about Author, Title etc.

They can easily be edited using djvused-command set-meta. (Does not work with current OS/2-port, 3.5.12 of djvulibre).

#153 Lucide 1.21, linked PDFs Lucide Core 1.0 Beta 3 1.4.0 defect Eugene Romanenko closed Feb 27, 2009 Oct 2, 2018 eco

From: Alan Beagley

This version still does not handle the service manual for my Sony tape drive (TSL-11000). This consists of multiple .PDF and other files (including some in subdirectories), and if I use Acrobat I can click on a chapter title in the Contents page and get taken to the correct chapter (in a separate file), and return again. All the individual cross-reference links work.

All Lucide displays is an error box with \"?\" in the title bar and \"???\" in the box.

I could send the whole manual, but the .zip file is 35MB. Do you want it?

#159 Improved buffering needed Lucide Core 1.0 1.4.0 enhancement Eugene Romanenko closed Apr 22, 2009 Oct 2, 2018 thomabrown

Often when scrolling through a .PDF document, there is a significant delay while some part of Lucide renders the new page or portion thereof.

Memory is relatively cheap these days, and OS/2-eCS provides excellent swapping. Lucide should buffer the current page as well as the prior and next pages so that the user doesn't have to wait so long while scrolling.

I am running Lucide 1.21 under eCS 2.0 rc6a with SNAP Versio 3.18, build 505

#161 Feature request: add clickable URLs Plugin: PDF 1.4.0 enhancement Eugene Romanenko closed May 27, 2009 Oct 2, 2018 jojo

ecs ticket 2710:

"Is there a plugin to follow URL links in a PDF document? or is it configurable?"

It would indeed be nice if this were possible.

#167 Improve "Save as..." Lucide Core 1.2 1.4.0 enhancement closed Mar 20, 2010 Oct 2, 2018 Batchheizer

Please improve the "Save as..."-Dialog. Change layout to "Open..."-Dialog (so preview is added), add a hotkey (Ctrl+s or Shift+Ctrl+S), and add the feature to save only some pages of the open document.

Perhaps it could look like:

Save [CHECKBOX] all pages.

[CHECKBOX] from page [COUNTER] to [COUNTER].

DJView has this useful feature. It could be used for easy extracting some pages from a large PDF or DJVU file. Also multipage TIFF-files (-> GBM-plugin) could use this feature.

#180 Version Reporting Lucide Core 1.3 1.4.0 enhancement closed Apr 19, 2010 Oct 2, 2018 David McKenna

Some PDF documents check the version of the reader and do not display if it is not what they require (with a notice to upgrade). Can Lucide report the most recent version? Even better if it would be user changable (to allow future 'upgrades'). I'll attach an example (a tax document).

#192 Page view Two-uo Side by Side Lucide Core 1.3 1.4.0 enhancement closed Apr 26, 2010 Oct 2, 2018 talldad

Please can we have a "two-up" page view side by side in addition to the Continuous and Single Page Views currently available?

#194 djvu file load error Plugin: DjVu 1.3 1.4.0 defect closed Apr 27, 2010 Oct 2, 2018 marka999

I have a number of files from a commercial program that Lucide 1.3.2 GA will not open. I receive the error message "File Load error!"

#195 Error opening pdf files in RSJ drives Lucide Core 1.3 1.4.0 defect closed Apr 28, 2010 Oct 2, 2018 edovila

With Lucide 1.3, when trying to open a pdf located in a RSJ CD disk, you get a File load error: Open error! message. The version of RSJ is 5.53

This problem is not present in Lucide 1.2

The problem occurs in 2 different PCs with 2 different brands of CD Writers.

#196 Lucide 1.3.2 GA (2010-04-22) fast browsing problem Lucide Core 1.3 1.4.0 defect closed Apr 30, 2010 Oct 2, 2018 Joop

When you load a big pdf in Lucide and you want to browse to a certain page with the go to option then Lucide will fail and exits. This happens also with the arrows in the bar.

#199 Password with "Umlaute" in PDF Plugin: PDF 1.3 1.4.0 defect closed May 1, 2010 Oct 2, 2018 Batchheizer

If I create a PDF via OpenOffice? and use a PWD with Umlaute, I cannot open it with Lucide. Maybe there is a codepage-problem. I hope it is no Unicode-problem. Maybe one Alex Taylors DLLs could help. Opening the document with AR5 is possible.

The PWD is "Lügen".

#210 cannot open a pdf file from inside Lucide 1.3.2 GA Lucide Core 1.3 1.4.0 defect Silvan Scherrer closed Oct 8, 2010 Oct 2, 2018 kmarjerison

When you hit the open file button and select certain PDF files, Lucide refuses to open them and displays the error : Cant find suitable plugin for specified document! If I browse to my PDF directory and double click the same file, it opens without any errors.

#230 lucide-1_3_4_beta2 Error Loading Lucide Core 1.3 1.4.0 defect closed Jan 11, 2012 Oct 2, 2018 madodel

Installed lucide-1_3_4_beta2 and when I try to start it I get

"Error loading Lucide.dll: can't find module 'STDCPP' (SYS0002)"

This is on eCS 2.1 with libc063.dll and gcc442.dll

What else am I missing?

#247 Current working directory is shared across running instances Lucide Core 1.3 1.4.0 defect closed May 3, 2012 Oct 2, 2018 Lewis Rosenthal

There is no way to keep different copies of Lucide pointing at different directories of files. This makes browsing multiple sources more awkward than it should be.


  1. Start Lucide.
  2. File | Open
  3. Browse to C:\docs\current\pdf
  4. Open a file.
  5. Shift-PgDn? moves to next file, etc. in that directory.
  6. Start second instance of Lucide.
  7. File | Open in second instance.

FOC starts at last directory from the first instance, e.g., C:\docs\current\pdf.

  1. Browse to J:\pdf\docs\current
  2. Open a file.
  3. Switch to first instance.
  4. File | Open in first instance.

FOC starts at last directory from the second instance, e.g., J:\pdf\docs\current.

Instances should be independent (or not, based on user preference).

Marking defect as I consider current behavior to be non-standard.

#282 Display a warning when the installed poppler lib is not at the required level to support the current PDF plugin Plugin: PDF 1.3.5 1.4.0 enhancement closed Aug 6, 2016 Oct 2, 2018 Lewis Rosenthal

Instead of merely not rendering PDFs, apply check at startup for requisite level of poppler dll. If not found, present a warning panel, e.g.:

Unable to load PDF Plugin.
Possible reason: Incompatible poppler library.

Please install poppler-0.42.0 to enable PDF rendering.

This would work for popplers which are too new as well as those which are too old.

#292 Lucide should have its own INI instead of cluttering up OS2.INI Backend 1.3.5 1.4.0 task Gregg Young closed Aug 22, 2016 Oct 2, 2018 Gregg Young

#303 Update DjVuLibre to latest version (3.5.27) Plugin: DjVu 1.3.6 1.4.0 task closed Aug 31, 2016 Oct 2, 2018 Lewis Rosenthal

While certainly not a priority, we may get some better rendering of DjVu files with a newer DjVuLibre.

#305 Update JPG (IJG) to latest version (9b) Plugin: JPG 1.3.6 1.4.0 task closed Aug 31, 2016 Oct 2, 2018 Lewis Rosenthal

While not critical, the current code is several revs back, from 2010. Latest source tarball is available from http://www.ijg.org/files/.

#307 Consider adding support for PDF inspection using peepdf Backend 1.3.6 1.4.0 enhancement closed Sep 6, 2016 Oct 2, 2018 Lewis Rosenthal

It would be useful to have the ability to scan PDFs for malicious content, with an option to scan before opening. This will become more important when we ultimately have JS support in Poppler, of course, but for now, like any other type of virus or malware scanning, it is mainly to ensure that we don't pass along bad stuff to others.

peepdf is a set of Python modules (with their own dependencies) to provide in-depth analysis of PDF documents. It would probably be advisable if peepdf and its dependencies (pyv8 and pylibemu) were added to the repo, here, and we utilize those modules. I have not thought through the implementation of this, however, so that will require some more careful planning.

#314 Better numeric field input validation required UI 1.3.6 1.4.0 defect Gregg Young closed Sep 12, 2016 Oct 2, 2018 Lewis Rosenthal

It is currently possible to enter alpha in page number dialogs, with no beep or any indication that anything erroneous has been entered. Lucide simply ignores the input. This is not a major issue, obviously, but for fit and finish, we should validate the input and provide some indication that the data is unacceptable.

I don't know how or if we are validating the Save as... filename input.

#339 Consider use of ArcaOS FOC when available Backend 1.4.0 1.4.0 enhancement Gregg Young closed Jan 27, 2017 Oct 2, 2018 Lewis Rosenthal

Instead of excluding Lucide from the system FOC, we might want to consider implementing FOC when available.

There is a method (see attached axample) to define custom controls and call them (using PM123 as an example, in this case) via:

call SysIni "USER", "PM_FOC_Substitute", "PM123.DLL,2101", "FOCRES.DLL,04" || '00'x 

#187 More extensions for Lucide program object Lucide Core 1.3 1.4.1 enhancement new Apr 24, 2010 Oct 2, 2018 pirx

In the plugin-list supported extensions are listed als follows:

  • PDF

Currently the warpin script only makes associatins for *.PDF and *.DJVU. I think the other extensions should also be associated.

#276 Add modifiers to expand/collapse all tree items in navigation pane UI 1.3.6 1.4.1 enhancement new Mar 24, 2016 Oct 2, 2018 Lewis Rosenthal

Suggest Ctrl-LMB as toggle to expand/collapse all collapsible items in navigation pane. It seems that Ctrl+ is already used for zoom, even if the navigation pane is currently selected. I have no suggestion for a keyboard-only accelerator, except perhaps "/" and "\" (for expand all and collapse all, respectively).

#344 FOC doesn't show all .bmp files when show supported files is selected UI 1.4.0 defect closed Mar 30, 2017 Oct 2, 2018 Gregg Young

This is with the GBM plugin installed and working. I found that if I delete the .type ea the problem is corrected. The .type eas in this case correctly identified them as bmp files.

The problem occurs both with and without the eco FOC enabled.

#270 Thumbnail creation very slow for larger and/or graphics-intensive PDF Backend 1.3.6 1.4.0 defect closed Mar 21, 2016 Sep 30, 2018 Lewis Rosenthal

Creating a new thumbnail for a PDF document (especially with graphical front page) can be excruciatingly slow (several seconds). Of course, because we don't do this in the background (as we probably should), the user must wait for the thumbnail to be created before opening the file for reading.

Possibly related to ticket #227.

#345 Minor issues in German language file Backend 1.4.0 defect closed Apr 9, 2017 Sep 27, 2018 ak120

There were a lot of inconsistencies in the German language file Lucide_de.lng. I don't want to list them all here. In general:

  • usage of wrong/misleading translation (I changed them to the termini used by German OS/2.)
  • Underlined key assignments for menus
  • Missing accel keys in "View" submenu (Ctrl++/- is not user friendly, so changed it to more logical Ctrt+PageUp/Down?)

#358 Search matches not highlighted Backend 1.4.1 defect closed Aug 9, 2018 Sep 23, 2018 Steven Levine

Prior versions of Lucide would highlight search matches. This no longer occurs with the Lucide 1.4GA and 1.4.1 betas.

On a related note, it was not possible to clear the search highlighting by entering an empty search string.

#355 Lucide 1.40 GA - crashes with large PDF files Backend 1.4.0 1.4.0 defect Gregg Young closed Apr 6, 2018 Sep 23, 2018 darcio

Lucide has been a pretty reliable PDF viewer for the most part, always displaying PDFs correctly but having some problems with printing. For the big print jobs I have been using GSView instead.

Recently I started work on Python programming and needed to review some PDF books. These are fairly large, some 25Meg in size. Attempting to open them (tried several) produce a crash. No error entry is present in popuplog.os2 though, nothing in the trap location either.

The Lucide 'Plugin list' shows lupplr (PDF plugin, based on poppler library 0.52.0) as the PDF plug-in. Since I have a YUM/RPM 'pentium4' platform install here I have the following pre-requisite modules installed:

libc.i686 (0.6.6-35.oc00)
libgcc1.pentium4 (
libgcc-fwd.pentium4 (
libstdc++6.pentium4 (
libsupc++6.pentium4 (
poppler.pentium4 (0.52.0-1.oc00)
poppler-data.noarch (0.4.7-2.oc00)
djvulibre.pentium4 (3.5.27-3.oc00)
uclip.pentium4 (0.3.0-1.oc00)
GBMDLL.i686 (1.76-1.oc00)

...but I do not have the libjpeg package, instead I am using: libjpeg-turbo.pentium4 (1.5.1-1.oc00).

I am guessing the large PDF filesize is causing a problem. To hopefully simply the troubleshooting I will u/l one of the PDF files, assuming I can get something that large attached to the ticket.

#347 Lucide release 1.4.0 GA crashes if more than single instance started Lucide Core 1.4.0 1.4.0 defect Gregg Young closed Apr 17, 2017 Sep 23, 2018 darcio

Attempting to open more than a single instance of Lucide causes a crash.

It does not appear to matter what document is being displayed. I encountered this while attempting to display multiple PDFs, however upon additional testing I can confirm that even when starting just the Lucide program, any other attempts to start a new instance will TRAP.

#348 Lucide leaves its INI file in the document directory when started from outside its own directory Backend 1.4.0 1.4.1 defect Gregg Young closed Apr 25, 2017 Jul 8, 2018 Lewis Rosenthal

I have been wondering why I've been forced to reset my preferences so often.

I started Lucide from Directory Master, in a sparsely populated directory well outside Lucide's program location. When I exited, I had a LUCIDE.INI in the document directory.

Marking this high priority as people are bound to notice this quickly.

#350 Lucide crashes when loading some files that already have a thumbnail EA. Backend 1.4.0 1.4.1 defect Gregg Young closed Sep 5, 2017 Jul 8, 2018 Steven Levine

Some Intel PDFs cause Lucide 1.40 to trap unless Lucide needs to create a thumbnail.

One example is:


If Lucide is configured to create thumbnails, the document will load.

If Lucide is not configured to create thumbnails, or the document document already has a thumbnail, Lucide with trap as shown in the attached .trp file.

Removing the thumbnail EA will allow the document to load without trapping.

Note when this trap occurs, exceptq is unable to open a trp file, so the report is written to stderr.

#268 Packaging requirements for 1.4.0 Packaging 1.3.5 1.4.0 task closed Mar 16, 2016 Feb 22, 2018 Lewis Rosenthal

Now that we are no longer using a static poppler, we have to determine the best course of action during install. For pdf rendering, we now require the poppler library to be installed. This is normally done via yum.

If we continue to package Lucide as WPI, this requires either a readme entry, a check during install, or an external call to yum during WarpIN install to ensure that poppler is on the system.

If we now package as RPM, of course, poppler would simply become a prerequisite.

Finally, we could package without plugins, and package plugins separately (though we still must decide on the best packaging method to use for each plugin).

#346 Lucide release 1.4.0 GA causes the RC3 PDF plug-in to stop working. Plugin: PDF 1.4.0 1.4.0 defect closed Apr 14, 2017 Apr 21, 2017 darcio

Previous version, 1.4.0 RC3 had the PDF plug-in working successfully. Having upgraded to 1.4.0 GA the PDF plug-in no longer works.

The DLL contents of the directory are:

4-07-17 4:50p 1413425 0 Lucide1.dll

4-07-17 4:49p 843627 0 lujpeg.dll
4-07-17 4:49p 871229 0 lupplr.dll

The previous version (1.4.0 RC3) used the following DLLs:

poppler-legacy-63 (0.47.0-1)
poppler-legacy-65 (0.49.0-2)

I suspect this is a poppler issue since the symptoms are identical to what I saw during my poppler packge upgrade and was resolved in ticket #341

#343 Latest RPM release of Poppler library breaks PDF plug-in in Lucide 1.4.0 beta Plugin: PDF 1.4.0 defect closed Mar 14, 2017 Mar 18, 2017 darcio

As the summary points out, the latest drop of Poppler library. Any PDF file no long displays, Lucid shows error message stating:

"Can't find suitable plugin for specified document"

Attempting to view available plugins does not show anything for PDFs.

#341 latest poppler (0.52.0) seems to prevent lucide from loading pdf plugin Backend 1.4.0 defect closed Mar 8, 2017 Mar 13, 2017 gerry

since running latest set of anpm updates, which included poppler 0.52.0, lucide is unable to process pdf files due to missing plugin

#312 Remove libdjvu and libjpeg from trunk Build System 1.3.6 1.4.0 task Gregg Young closed Sep 12, 2016 Feb 26, 2017 Lewis Rosenthal

If we are now building these plugins from rpm-supplied sources without modification, there should be no reason to maintain these sources in the tree.

If there is a reason to keep these, please advise.

#335 Reverse mapping of PgUp/PgDn when focus is in page number field of toolbar Lucide Core 1.4.0 1.4.0 defect Gregg Young closed Dec 23, 2016 Feb 26, 2017 Lewis Rosenthal

If the cursor is in the page number field in the toolbar, pressing PgUp increments the page number, actually moving farther into the document. Likewise, PgDn decrements the page number, moving the opposite direction.

#325 Upgrade from 1.3.5 GA to 1.4.0 produces no working plugins. Packaging 1.4.0 1.4.0 defect closed Sep 25, 2016 Feb 26, 2017 darcio

To be clear, I did not use RPM/YUM to install. Instead I followed the README details and downloaded all the applicable packages and extracted just the DLLs. I then cross-referenced this with the ZIP version of the packages (as available on the netlabs ZIP folder) and confirmed the right DLLs were available.

By default no plugins are recognized. The only way I can get any plugins to be activated is to move the 1.3.5 GA version of the DLL into the Lucide 1.4.0 program working directory.

This implies the poppler/djvulibre/libjpeg installations are non-functioning. I suspect I am missing some other DLL, or that the RPM/YUM install method itself re-organizes the OS/2 install in some other way beyond the drop of the correct DLLs.

#336 Updated Czech translation for 1.4.0 RC4 (plus corrections of the English readme) Lucide Core 1.4.0 1.4.0 enhancement closed Dec 26, 2016 Feb 26, 2017 xhajt03


The attached file contains updated versions of readme_cs.txt and lucide_cs.lng, plus a diff file for the English readme containing fixes for some typos.

#337 Ensure that exclusion is set for ArcaOS system FOC when installing Lucide Packaging 1.4.0 1.4.0 task Gregg Young closed Jan 4, 2017 Feb 26, 2017 Lewis Rosenthal

As the (new) default FOC in ArcaOS has no provision for a drives dropdown, we need to ensure that we are on the exclusion list when we install Lucide. This prevents the drives dropdown in Lucide's FOC from being greyed out and unavailable.

#299 Remember Print type between jobs UI 1.3.6 enhancement closed Aug 26, 2016 Feb 19, 2017 Lewis Rosenthal

Currently, when printing one job and setting Print type to Image, the next time the print dialog is opened, the print type reverts to the default, which for a PostScript printer is PostScript.

The inconsistency is with the page range, where printing the current page and then raising the print dialog again, the current page is pre-selected, as it was used the last time.

Use case:

When scrolling through a document and printing either the current page or several page ranges, one must be careful to select Image as the print type in each instance (assuming one needs to do that in any case).

#333 Add help reference to env vars for 1.4.0 and how to add help guides for plugins to help path Documentation 1.4.0 1.4.0 task Lewis Rosenthal closed Dec 23, 2016 Dec 23, 2016 Lewis Rosenthal

The user should not have to refer to the readme to know how to set these variables. Suggest adding help section to address them.

#332 Improve help layout (better CUA compliance) Documentation 1.4.0 1.4.0 defect Lewis Rosenthal closed Dec 23, 2016 Dec 23, 2016 Lewis Rosenthal

Section headings are repeated in sections vs relying upon window title to display them. This is distracting (it wasn't distracting when I first scripted it, as I used a less prominent font for the titlebars).

#329 Button and checkbox alignment in FOC could be improved UI 1.4.0 1.4.0 defect closed Oct 19, 2016 Dec 23, 2016 Lewis Rosenthal

Related to the changes made in #318, the new checkbox and Help button positioning is still not quite right.

Attaching images of current and proposed positioning.

#328 Total page count clipped in toolbar for really long documents UI 1.4.0 1.4.0 defect closed Oct 17, 2016 Oct 19, 2016 Lewis Rosenthal

I had occasion to open a 10,470-page PDF over the weekend. While the input box had ample room to display the current page number, the total page count was clipped (screenshot attached).

Looks like we need a skoch more room before the "Next page" button.

#324 Change hardcoded lucide_en.hlp to reference %LUCIDEHELP% and set variable during install Lucide Core 1.4.0 1.4.0 task closed Sep 24, 2016 Oct 19, 2016 Lewis Rosenthal

This will help with NLS issues, as well.

The goals here are:

  1. Move away from a hardcoded filename in lucide.cpp;
  2. Allow for appending plugin-specific help guides (and others) to the variable;
  3. Allow for substituting any help file for Lucide's help file;

The test WIS currently sets/appends to the following in CONFIG.SYS:

  • HELP

For plugins, the idea is to have plugin authors provide plugin-specific help and to append such files to %LUCIDEHELP% so they are loaded at once. The last page of Lucide's own user's guide will be titled Appendix and contain text indicating that third-party plugin help will appear in subsequent pages.

I have a test help file in progress for the GBM plugin which illustrates this concept.

#295 Build against poppler 0.47.0 Plugin: PDF 1.3.6 task closed Aug 22, 2016 Oct 16, 2016 Lewis Rosenthal

poppler 0.47.0 just landed (popple63.dll).

Too bad we need to rebuild each time. I tried symlinking popple63.dll to popple59.dll, but alas, no go.

#323 Change project link in dialoogs.rc to align with documentation UI 1.4.0 1.4.0 task Gregg Young closed Sep 21, 2016 Oct 15, 2016 Lewis Rosenthal

The project link in dialogs.rc (for the About box) points to http://svn.netlabs.org. Documentation currently refers to the project page as https://trac.netlabs.org/lucide/ so we should be consistent.

#297 last night's poppler update seems to have damaged the pdf plugin Backend 1.3.6 defect closed Aug 23, 2016 Oct 15, 2016 gerry

up to first thing this morning I was able to print .pdf files with 136rc1, but since applying YUM updates, which I am sure included one to poppler, the pdf plugin is no longer listed. same result for rc2a.

#318 suspicious file open dialog option UI 1.4.0 enhancement Gregg Young closed Sep 18, 2016 Oct 15, 2016 rbri

Stumbled on the new option 'Toggle no thumbnail creation'. As far as i can see, this is a checkbox. Usually the text for checkboxes have no 'toggle' part. The text describes the behavior used when the box is checked. My expectation is more like 'Create thumbnails' and the initial checkbox state depends on the option setting.

But maybe i'm wrong....

#283 Consider removing JPG plugin in favor of GBM Plugin: JPG 1.3.6 1.4.0 enhancement closed Aug 8, 2016 Sep 21, 2016 Lewis Rosenthal

I have long used the GBM (Generalised Bitmap Module) plugin, which covers a much wider range of image formats than JPG. As Lucide has issues with "plugin overlap" it is necessary to disable the included JPG plugin in order to make full use of the GBM plugin.

It may be time to just remove the JPG plugin from the distribution entirely and point people to the GBM. Frpm the GBM description:

GBM (Generalised Bitmap Module) is a library for handling many different bitmap file formats. It comes with a set of useful command line tools for doing bitmap manipulations and format conversion. In this version BMP, JPG, JP2, PNG, TIF, PBM, PGM, PPM, PNM, XPM, JBG and RAW support is additionally included.

More explanation is needed in this topic so that when a user is denied access to an encrypted document and clicks the Help button, he may gain useful insight as to the possible reasons for the denial.

Much of this text has already been written, but is linked in the reference sections of the guide. Repeat some of this, here.

#267 Make thumbnails optional Backend 1.3.5 1.4.0 enhancement Gregg Young closed Mar 14, 2016 Sep 18, 2016 Lewis Rosenthal

Not everyone wants or needs thumbnails. We should add an option in the Settings dialog to enable thumbnail creation. I still don't think that we should create thumbnails for encrypted PDFs, no matter what, but for unencrypted documents, we should provide an option.

#263 Do not create thumbnail for encrypted PDF Lucide Core 1.3 1.4.0 defect Gregg Young closed Dec 24, 2015 Sep 18, 2016 Lewis Rosenthal

We should not create thumbnails for password-protected (encrypted) documents, as this is a potential security risk (thumbnail could be viewed by anything, unencrypted).

Alternatively, encrypt the thumbnail data somehow, so that it may only be decrypted with the original password for the document itself.

#12 Add help-pages Lucide Core 1.4.0 enhancement Lewis Rosenthal closed May 28, 2006 Sep 18, 2016 ktk

There should be context-sensitive help available for Lucide. Probably we should talk to Christian Langanke about how to implement that properly.

Again, support from the community is very welcome!

#120 Reverse-order printing Lucide Core 1.4.0 enhancement Gregg Young closed May 28, 2007 Aug 20, 2016 guest

Without a duplex printer, a simple way to print double-sided documents is to print the even pages in the reverse order (for example 10 8 6 4 2) then put them back in the printer and print the odd pages in the normal order (for example 1 3 5 7 9). Without reverse order printing, in this example, page 2 will be on the bottom of the printed pages, page 1 will be printed on the back of page 10, etc.

GSView has this possibility of reverse-order printing, it would be very nice if Lucide had it too.

#275 Save As... should be Save as... and should also have a hotkey (Ctrl-Shift-S or Ctrl-A) UI 1.3.6 1.4.0 enhancement Gregg Young closed Mar 22, 2016 Aug 19, 2016 Lewis Rosenthal

The uppercase "As" is inconsistent with other multi-word menu choices (I have not looked at languages besides English). In addition, It should be easier to save as another name via one of the above shortcuts, the latter being more OS/2-like and the former more Acrobat-like. (I would vote for Ctrl-A.)

Marking this as an enhancement as it does not adversely affect operation as it is, now.

See #127 for additional/related saving enhancement suggestion.

All versions of Lucide, including the newest v. 1.20, will only print from the manual feed tray on my HP LaserJet? 5MP(Postscript driver), even though the printer is configured to take paper from Tray 2 (paper cassette). Lucide is the ONLY program that does this, all others print correctly.

#184 Add command line switch to silently print given file Lucide Core 1.2 1.4.0 enhancement closed Apr 22, 2010 Mar 13, 2016 dcs

Given the printing problems from Firefox 3+ it would be usefull to be able to invoke lucide thus:

lucide --print some-file.pdf --printer foo

Whereby lucide never becomes visible and just dumps the file to the given printer. It is easy to catch the pdf hitting the desktop with the XWP hook, but one then has to select print and close from within lucide. Further, because lucide is a PM app the window running the hook script also becomes visible on lucide closing and has to be minimised - again. :-(

#220 Just printing the first page Lucide Core 1.3 1.4.0 defect closed Jan 14, 2011 Mar 13, 2016 Mikael Elf

If my system has been running for a while, let's say an hour (I have no exact time)Lucide just print the first page of a pdf. But if I restart eCS2.0 and print directly after this reboot, Lucide is printing normally, all pages.

Other apps don't show that behaviour. I'm printing on a Kyocera FS-1000 via SLPR (the printer is connected to another computer with eCS2.0). I can't see any difference in the LPR-command window on the receiving computer, in regard to successful or failed prints, both shows up as received and printed.

#255 Non-ascii characters display correctly in bookmarks but not in "Document information" Plugin: PDF 1.3 1.4.0 defect closed May 23, 2013 Mar 13, 2016 Alfredo Fernández Díaz

I was using an older Lucide so I thought this minor annoyance would have been fixed by now -- it hasn't.

See attached PDF in Lucide (or have a look at the screencap). Lots of national characters display OK in the navigation panel, but the 'doc info' window does a typical codepage mistranslation or whatever (character right above the mouse cursor in the capture should be "ó", not "¾"). QPDFV shows such stuff OK in both places.

I've also attached the .pdfmarks file I use to generate the test file with GhostScript?. It is encoded using codepage Win1252.
