#327 Lucide 1.4.0 beta runs very slowly... Lucide Core 1.4.0 defect closed Oct 11, 2016 Jun 20, 2020 babydoc

I run eCS2.2b2. I use ANPM to install libraries. I installed Lucide 1.4.0 following all instructions as well as GMB. Lucide runs but it opens pdf pages slowly and is very slow to change pages in a pdf. It seems to run well when displaying JPGs. I have cheched and rechecked for duplicate DLLs and eliminated them.

#370 Better navigation of form fields in fill-in PDFs Plugin: PDF 1.4.1 enhancement new Jan 1, 2019 Jan 1, 2019 Lewis Rosenthal

It should be possible to <Tab> and <shift-Tab> to move between input fields in fill-in PDF documents. Currently (1.4.1 RC2), <Tab> switches the focus from the current field to the current page itself.

#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.

#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.

#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

#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).

#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.

#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....

#310 Updated Czech translation for 1.3.6 Documentation 1.3.6 enhancement closed Sep 11, 2016 Sep 12, 2016 xhajt03


Attached you'll find an updated version of the Czech language file and readme (corresponding to the trunk version of the respective files).


#289 Clicking Job properties in Print dialog toggles toolbar off UI 1.3.6 defect closed Aug 20, 2016 Aug 24, 2016 Lewis Rosenthal

1.3.6 RC2:

When the Print dialog is visible, clicking the Job properties button to raise the system Job settings notebook causes the toolbar to disappear. To get it back, it seems necessary to switch to Presentation (F5) and back again.

#291 Crash when copying from font info box Lucide Core 1.3.6 defect Gregg Young closed Aug 21, 2016 Aug 22, 2016 Lewis Rosenthal

Copy via Ctrl+Ins one or multiple lines causes access violation in lucide1.dll.

Can reproduce with a variety of PDF documents. TRP file attached.

cc'ing Steve because, well, I know he enjoys these things.

#293 Font info dialog should left align column headings UI 1.3.6 defect closed Aug 22, 2016 Aug 22, 2016 Lewis Rosenthal

This correlates to #278.

I have it fixed. Will commit.

#278 Plugins list window should left align column headings UI 1.3.5 defect closed Jul 31, 2016 Aug 19, 2016 Lewis Rosenthal

I use the GBM plugin, which handles a lot of file types. Unfortunately, this results in the heading for the "Supported extensions" column appearing so far to the right (centered) that it is out of the main field of view, making the presentation look somewhat broken (even though it is not).

#287 Lucide.lng - "FDLG_ALL_FILES" string missing in "File Dialog" section UI 1.3.6 defect closed Aug 9, 2016 Aug 14, 2016 Guillaume Gay

Found a missing string command in "File Dialog" section: "FDLG_ALL_FILES". The original Lucide.lng file, should show FDLG_ALL_FILES=<All files>

(along with "FDLG_ALL_SUPPORTED_TYPES=<All supported types>")

This would allow the translation of the "<All files>" item shown in the "File type" drop down list of the File dialog.

#286 French language file for Lucide 1.3.6 Packaging 1.3.6 enhancement closed Aug 9, 2016 Aug 14, 2016 Guillaume Gay
  • Correction of a 4 years old typo.
  • Translation of a full section completely overlooked in 4 years: "Open file dialog"!
  • Translation of the new strings added in 1.3.6
  • Found a missing string command in "File Dialog" section, so I've added it just in case it would be usefull "FDLG_ALL_FILES".

#285 French readme file for Lucide Documentation 1.3.6 enhancement closed Aug 9, 2016 Aug 14, 2016 Guillaume Gay

Lucide 1.3.6 "readme" file translated in French.

#284 English readme file review Documentation 1.3.6 enhancement closed Aug 9, 2016 Aug 14, 2016 Guillaume Gay
  • Correction of a typo corrected.
  • Correction of an inconsistency in the layout

#218 Poor printing quality Lucide Core 1.3 defect closed Jan 9, 2011 Jul 21, 2016 Hansi

The print quality of Lucide is much worse compared with other applications. I have attached a scanned printout from OpenOffice?, Acrobat 3.0 and Lucide 1.3.2

eCS 2.0 GA Brother HL-2030 USB

#170 Mouseproblem in fullscreen-mode (xPager) Lucide Core 1.3 defect closed Mar 31, 2010 Jul 20, 2016 Batchheizer

Viewing a file in fullscreen mode makes the mouse disappear even if an other xPager (ePager)-Screen is activated.

Maybe an option "Do not hide mouse in fullcreen" could help.

Version 1.21 eCS 2 Silver Release, Amouse.

#25 Appearence improvements Lucide Core enhancement Eugene Romanenko closed Jun 12, 2006 Oct 28, 2014 Rudi

I suggest not to clear the whole window background before repainting. Especially resizing the window while viewing a JPG looks very ugly. Also, the toolbar should not flicker, while the window is resized.

Another suggestion: replace the tree expand/collaps icons/bitmaps in the container by user defined ones and force them not to be streched. Hint: Pronews has nice ones that fit the font size used.

#240 Fehler beim Schreiben der Datei Lucide Core 1.3 defect closed Mar 15, 2012 Oct 28, 2014 mst

Benutze Lucide als Helper App für pdf in Seamonkey und Firefox.

Interessante pdf speichere ich dann gerne via Lucide ab.

Allerdings kommt es hin und wieder dazu, das eine Fehlermeldung "Fehler beim Schreiben der Datei!" erscheint.

Die Datei wird im ausgewählten Verzeichnis unter dem einegebenen Namen mit einer Größe von 0 Bytes angelegt.

Beispiel: http://www.epcos.com/web/generator/Web/Sections/ProductCatalog/Ferrites/Materials/PDF/PDF__N27,property=Data__en.pdf;/PDF_N27.pdf

Das Problem gibt es in allen mir bekannten Lucide Versionen.

Die Erweiterung des Dateinamens beim Speichern um " Kopie" ist auch eher störend.

#245 Cannot open embedded pdf Lucide Core 1.3 enhancement closed Apr 16, 2012 Oct 28, 2014 Lewis Rosenthal

Received an encrypted pdf from a financial brokerage. Upon supplying the password to access the document, there is a link to open the embedded pdf (a pdf inside another pdf). Clicking the link does nothing (Lucide 1.3.4 GA).

In Acrobat 10, clicking the link (the mouse cursor remains an I-beam, but the link *is* clickable), the embedded pdf opens in a new window.

This may depend upon support in Poppler; I haven't checked. However, the "wrapper" pdf decrypts properly.

I will have to try to recreate such a document for testing (this one has confidential information). The outside pdf was created with iText 2.0.8, and appears to be in PDF version 1.4; the inner one was created with ClibPDF Library 2.02-r1-2.

#206 Find function broken Plugin: PDF 1.3 defect closed Jul 10, 2010 Sep 3, 2014 rudi

Often - but not always - the "Find" function would simply jump to the end of the document even though the search text is present. This seems to happen only in "Continuous" mode (which I normally prefer).

#250 Printing Problems Lucide Core 1.3 defect closed Nov 16, 2012 Sep 3, 2014 bottomtop

Trying to print to Lexmark Optra s1625. A print job is visible in the spooler for a very very short time and the printer will run a warm-up cycle, but no pages print. The only other available printer is postscript. When Lucide prints to a postscript printer the actual postrcipt control file commands (rather than the file) are printed.

#249 USA Form W-9 fill out cannot be read by Acrobat Lucide Core 1.3 defect closed Oct 26, 2012 Sep 3, 2014 BlondeGuy

I downloaded and filled out USA form W-9. Lucide easily filled out the form, and I saved it. Lucide can re-open the form, and the filled out values are correct.

If I go to Mac or Windows and open the filled out form with Acrobat, all the fields are blank.

Lucide 1.3.5 A blank Form W-9 is attached.

#228 New feature request - plugin for .ps intermediate Plugin: PDF 1.2 enhancement closed Jul 4, 2011 Oct 21, 2013 talldad

I still find GSView and Ghostscript useful for creating pdfs, other than those created by OpenOffice? export or Mozilla.

Could Lucide handle a plugin to view .ps files? Would such a plugin be of value to others, or is the .ps intermediate file not worth having?

#252 Lucide Menu Bar Navigation is not standard Lucide Core 1.3 defect closed Jan 24, 2013 Feb 18, 2013 cmcampb

I opened Lucide, and wanted to look at a recently opened document. So I pressed the Alt+d key combination to open the "Document" drop down menu, and nothing happened. When I pressed Alt alone, the first menu item (Document) was highlighted, and I could press the down arrow key to see the drop down menu, and the right and left arrow keys to navigate the menu bar. Also, I could press Alt, then press any of the letters underlined on the menu bar (D,E,V,W,H), and behavior was correct (the drop down menu appeared).

#251 Lucide 1.3.5GA does not render a PDF document to screen Lucide Core 1.3 defect closed Dec 10, 2012 Jan 17, 2013 talldad

Received a series of PDFs v1.3

Lucide does not render them to screen or print them, but simply shows an underline for about 4 character positions.

However, Ghostscript and GSView can read them and print them. Two files attached for inspection.

#215 Improve picture scaling quality Lucide Core 1.3 enhancement closed Nov 1, 2010 May 10, 2012 rudi

When a picture (like a screenshot) is embedded in a PDF, Lucide seems to apply a simple, pixel duplication-like upscaling algorithm, which results in ugly appearance and poor readability. Other PDF viewers use smooth scaling instead, which produces a much better visual result.

#241 WPI doesn't find gcc446 Lucide Core 1.3 enhancement closed Mar 16, 2012 May 10, 2012 talldad

When installing from the WPI package, the install looked for gcc446.dll only on my Drive C (not found with an elaborate path).

I already have it installed on my Drive D in D:\extradll but now I have gcc446.dll installed on two drives.

It would be more graceful for the wpi install script to ask for (and accept) an alternative location for gcc.dll.

#243 Updated readme_cs.txt for 1.3.4 Lucide Core 1.3 enhancement closed Mar 20, 2012 Mar 22, 2012 xhajt03


The attached file contains the updated readme_cs.txt corresponding to changes in 1.3.4 (new paragraph about support of Japanese fonts).

Thanks for your continuing work on Lucide!


#237 yum gcc-stdc++ gcc-supc++ Lucide Core 1.3 defect closed Jan 15, 2012 Jan 16, 2012 fbakan

#235 Lucide 1.3.4 Beta 2 will not start Lucide Core 1.3 defect closed Jan 12, 2012 Jan 12, 2012 cliff185

Trying to start gives this error: Error Loading Lucide.dll:Can't find module STDCPP (SYS0002).

#65 Slow scrolling/paging when graphics present Lucide Core 1.0 Beta 2 defect Eugene Romanenko closed Jul 19, 2006 Jan 12, 2012 cliff185@…

When viewing a PDF with significant graphics the scrolling/paging is quite slow in comparision with Innotek Acorbat 5.1 Beta. The difference is in the order of 4 - 5 times in some cases. Text only scrolling is very nice, it is only the graphics that brings it to its knees. This is seen when using the mouse or keyboard.

#231 Lucide 1.3.4 beta2 needs LIBC064 Lucide Core 1.2 defect closed Jan 12, 2012 Jan 12, 2012 thomabrown

The announcement on VOICENEWS states that Lucide 1.3.4 beta2 needs libc-0.6.3-csd3, but:

[e:\programs\lucide]Lucide.exe SYS0002: The system cannot find the file specified. "LIBC064"

#146 Add OCR-Text-Feature to djvu-plugin Lucide Core 1.0 Beta 3 enhancement Eugene Romanenko closed Aug 29, 2008 May 4, 2011 batchheizer

DJVu-files could contain OCR-created text of the (picture-)document displayed. This text is created with the djvu-file (not possible with the OS/2-DJVU-Pack but online: http://djvu.org/any2djvu/). Some viewers can display (and search) the text.

For example: javadjvu


Create a OCR-djvu-File, start it with javadjvu and look what I mean.

It would be great, if Lucide could display the text too.

#148 Bookmarks of DJVU-File Plugin: DjVu 1.0 Beta 3 enhancement Eugene Romanenko closed Sep 2, 2008 May 4, 2011 batchheizer

Lucide should be able to read and display the outline-structure of a djvu-file (bookmarks). Now it only displays "Page 1" etc. in bookmarks-section.

#223 DesktopxxxxCopy added to filename Lucide Core 1.2 defect closed Mar 10, 2011 Mar 14, 2011 Mikael Elf

Every time a pdf is saved, Lucide (since ver GA?) adds "Desktop" before file name and "Copy" afterwords. I find it very unnecessary and this is something I have to change every time. Why? Is this due to some copyright-laws or..?

Can we please get rid of this function or optionally turn it off?

#224 fast page-browse function missing in 1.3.3 beta Lucide Core 1.3 defect closed Mar 11, 2011 Mar 12, 2011 Mikael Elf

The very valuable "fast page-browse" function has disappeared in the 1.3.3 beta version. See picture.

#203 Menu bar is not navigable with the keyboard Lucide Core 1.3 defect closed May 24, 2010 Jun 1, 2010 sparrac

The menu bar is not navigable with the keyboard.

When the "Alt" key is pressed, the "File" menu is shown, but when the cursor keys are pressed, the menu disappears.

The menu bar accelerators doesn't work.

#201 Printing with Postscript option prints raw PS statements Lucide Core 1.3 defect closed May 1, 2010 May 3, 2010 GaryDrag

I am using the current environment:

Lucide 1.32 Dell 3100cn printer Postscript printer driver version 30.778 eCS kernel 14.103a

The Print dialog provides the Print Type options of Postscript and As Image. The Postscript option is the default. Printing the document with the Postscript option generates multiple pages of the raw Postscript printer control language statements. The document prints properly when using the As Image option. This problem occurs with all PDF files.

This problem would be less of an issue if the previously selected print options were saved between program sessions or the default options could be specified under Settings. Thank you for your help.

#171 Unable to open JPG-Files Lucide Core 1.3 defect closed Apr 10, 2010 Apr 13, 2010 Batchheizer

Trying to open a jpg-file via File-open dialog or via Drag'n'drop is not possible. Error: "Nicht unterstütztes Dateiformat." (non supported Fileformat).

Tried three different files. Plugin is installed (correctly?).

#17 slow rendering of certain pages Plugin: PDF 1.0 Beta 1 defect Eugene Romanenko closed May 29, 2006 Mar 22, 2010 joachim@…

Please see page 3,4,6 etc. of this PDF document. They seem to render quite slow, especially when compared to Acrobat Reader 4.

#122 Lucide 1.0 blanks document display on 200 Mhz XGA under Warp 4.5 Lucide Core 1.0 defect Eugene Romanenko closed Jun 6, 2007 Mar 18, 2010 guest

I installed the new Lucide 1.0 under eComStation 1.2R just fine on an IBM Thinkpad T40, T30, and T21 and it works great (in place of the Beta-4 version). But when I copied it over to my PC-500 (200 Mhz Pentium) XGA system running under Warp for e-Business, it blanks out the document display. I can see it first draw the top of the page (top down) and then re-displays the document portion of the session, but the second time around it is blank. This behavior happens on all documents of various kinds (redbooks, manuals, user guides, etc from many sources). The same documents work great on my laptops so I will stay with the new version on them, but I have had to revert back to Beta-4 on my PC-500 system.

Let me know if I can help in any way. Thanks for a GREAT program - - - - John Weis (WeisJ@…)

#131 Lucide closes without error on scroll wheel or arrow key scrolling in PDF files Lucide Core defect Eugene Romanenko closed Sep 14, 2007 May 28, 2008 guest

I have the above occur regularly. I occurs after multiple lines usually a half page or more have been scrolled but is not consistent. Lucide simply vanishes from the screen.

#10 PDF comments don't work properly Plugin: PDF 1.0 Beta 1 defect Eugene Romanenko closed May 28, 2006 May 28, 2008 ktk

There are PDF documents with comments in it, those don't work with Acrobat on OS/2 so far. Lucide does obviously support it somehow, at least I can see some nice flags in the document but the comment itself are not shown.

See the attached PDF

#126 Shortcuts for rotating right/left only work with +/- on keyboard number block Lucide Core 1.0 defect Eugene Romanenko closed Aug 2, 2007 Sep 5, 2007 guest

The shortcut for rotating left is Ctrl+Shift++ and for rotating right Ctrl+Shift+-. Unfortunately only + and - on the keyboard number block work but not the ones from standard letter block.

I have found this in Lucide 1.01.

#86 Open file dialog does not display files by type if filename has more than one dot Lucide Core 1.0 Beta 3 defect Eugene Romanenko closed Sep 6, 2006 Sep 3, 2007 dave@…

The open file dialog finds all pdf files in directory except those that have more than one dot in the file name.

Finds UserManual?-MioMap?-v3_2-C710-UK.pdf fails to find UserManual?-MioMap?-v3.2-C710-UK.pdf

This *might* be an OS/2 limitation on the open file box though. I am not certain.

#43 Lucide selection of internal plug-ins Lucide Core 1.0 Beta 1.1 enhancement Eugene Romanenko closed Jul 10, 2006 Aug 24, 2007 StuUpdike@…

I have noted that Lucide cannot select the correct internal plug-in (gives error message) when my browser hands it a file without the expected extension. For example, one of my employer's web sites hands off a pdf file with the name showdocument.cgi. I have my browser set to use Lucide as a helper application when either pdf or cgi is the extension. This is the same setup which I used with Acrobat 3.0. Apparently Lucide relies solely upon the extension for plug-in selection. However,if Lucide were to look inside the file when the extension is missing, incorrect, or not understood, it would find that PDF files all begin with something like "%PDF-1.4" and all DjVU files begin with something like "AT&TFORM". These phrases inside the file could then be used to select the proper plug-in.

Thank you,

Stu Updike Bedford, Texas USA

#66 Feature to subsequently load supported files in same directory Lucide Core enhancement Eugene Romanenko closed Jul 19, 2006 Aug 10, 2007 christian.hennecke@…

PMView offers a feature that lets you load the next file of a supported file format that resides in the same directory as the currently loaded file. By pressing the plus and minus keys, you can subsequently step through all images in a directory. Very useful for, e.g., viewing digital photographs. Such a feature would greatly enhance Lucide's usability.

#115 Cannot install 1.0 GA when drive C: is unavailable Lucide Core 1.0 defect Eugene Romanenko closed Mar 7, 2007 Aug 5, 2007 guest

Lucide installation now requires that UClip be installed first.

UClip installation (once the file has been found) requires WarpIN, this week's version.

Running the UClip .wpi file, WarpIN (after it has been updated) then asks where UClip should be installed (suggesting a directory on the eComStation boot volume, F:, which is fine).

But then it reports that a directory on C: does not exist, and should it create it?

The answer to the question (on my system) is NO! C: is not available as a dumping ground for some extraneous files. (At any given time, I have one "live" C: and another hidden C:).

WarpIN does not provide an opportunity to install UClip to any other directory or drive. When the response is not to create a file on C:, the program shuts down, game over.

For want of a nail, the kingdom was lost. Lucide cannot be installed unless one is willing to have drive C: trashed.

Windows always requires C:; OS/2 never has. Lucide has mimicked this deplorable trait of Windows.

#103 Find dialog behaviour and appearence Lucide Core 1.0 Beta 3 defect Eugene Romanenko closed Jan 10, 2007 Jan 21, 2007 guest

In all other PDF - Viewers, the text in the "Find" - Dialog is initially selected, so that typing a new word will delete the old text. I would prefer this behaviour over the current situation where newly typted search text is appended to the previous.

Also, the height of entry field in for the search text is much big. It is probably set up using the same height as the "O.K." button besides it, but since the text typed in is bottom-aligned, it looks kind of weird.

Scrolling seems very erratic. At no time have I been able to get the scroll bars to do anything, either by dragging or by clicking on the Up/Down? buttons. Sometimes the PgUp/PgDn? keys will work, but I keep finding the program in a state where these do nothing either and nor do Lucide's own forward/backward buttons.

I have tried opening BMP files (handled I expect by the GBM Plugin) and Jpeg files (handled I hope by the JPG plugin) and in all cases the program aborts and reports an access violation in LUGBM.DLL.

Upon testing, by moving GBM.DLL once again out of the working directory and trying to open the JPEG file again - it opens without problems, so I start to suspect that there may be a compatibility between the GBM plugin and version Beta2 of Lucide ?

#18 Plug-in API should support delayed loading of requested file pages only Lucide Core 1.0 Beta 1 enhancement Eugene Romanenko closed Jun 7, 2006 Jul 7, 2006 hn_netlabs_trac@…

First of all my congratulations to the very good idea of a generic document viewer. It looks really promising. For developers the plugin API needs to be documented but I guess this is planned already.

I just had a quick look at the plugin sources of the PDF reader because it takes quite long to open a PDF file with many pages.

The Plug-in API seems to support only loading a file as a whole with all pages. This might not be possible for large documents (e.g. big multipage images or complex PDFs) due to system memory constraints. Also it forces the user to wait unecessarily long time and finally the user might not even want to have a look at all pages of the document.

As a workaround plugins could defer loading pages to view during rendering but this is obviously not intended as there is no way to report read errors.

I'd suggest to either enhance the loadFile function or introduce some kind of page switching function with a return code that allows plugins to load a document page on demand. This might be also helpful for supporting document streaming from an URL if this is planned sometime. If memory gets low, the plugin could drop pages from memory if not needed to reduce memory footprint.
