Lucide v. 1.5.0GA (8/5/2019) Readme/What's new
1.5.0 - Update Poppler to version 0.59.0 fixes traps with loading large files caused by mutex handle exhausion. Tickets 350, 355 - Masked floating point underflow exception caused by the Poppler update - link to libcx (0.6.3) for exceptq support and to place heap in high memory - Fixed trap caused by DosEnumAttribute not being high mem safe. - Prevent print dialog from opening if no printers are found Ticket 340 - Add SAVE for PDF form files Tickets 181, 254, 273, 238 - Allow file name selection in saveas dialog Ticket 349 - Don't prompt to save file on close after save/saveas Ticket 274 - Update wis to load readme licenses and changelog from archives Ticket 352 - Wis changes to facilitate translation (language selection based on Lang environment variable) - Remove option to not associate Lucide with PDFs.

They shouldn't be installed together - Limit size of text fields in PDF forms to length returned from the document - Tooltip to show link URLs - One level "back" on internal links - Update documentation to reflect changes - Improve index sync with scrolling - Add Spanish help file; Update Spanish readme and lng file.(Alfredo Fernández Díaz) - Add debug symbols to the installer. - Add a contex menu to the document window. - Made help instance language aware (only English and Spanish currectly) - Update and sync dependencies in all the readmes. - Add a partial Polish translation (Tae Wong) :: About Lucide :: Lucide is a plugin-based document viewer with support for various file formats. It provides a SOM based plugin architecture which allows 3rd party programmers to easily add more plugins. :: Plugins :: Supported file type Supported features -------------------------------------------------------------------------- PDF scaling, rotation, navigation, text selection, searching, asynchronous rendering, form fill-in, PostScript printing DJVU Scaling, PostScript printing GBM document info, loading all formats supported by GBM*, save loaded bitmap if it has only one page, multipage bitmap viewing, load bitmap page on demand, scaling and rotation, file thumbnail creation, high quality scaling algorithm for improved appearance, configurable background rendering for fast page switching and continuous scrolling JPG Scaling, JPG is supported by GBM so this isn't part of the default install -------------------------------------------------------------------------- *OS/2 / Windows Bitmap, CompuServe Graphics Interchange, ZSoft PC Paintbrush Image, Microsoft/Aldus Tagged Image, Truevision Targa/Vista, Amiga IFF/ILBM Interleaved Bitmap, YUV12C M-Motion Frame Buffer, Portable Bit-map, Portable Greyscale-map, Portable Pixel-map, Portable Anymap, Portable Network Graphics, IBM KIPS, IBM Image Access eXecutive, X Windows Bitmap, X Windows PixMap, Archimedes Sprite from RiscOS, IBM Printer Page Segment, GEM Raster, Portrait, JPEG Interchange, JPEG2000 Graphics, JBIG Joint Bi-level Image experts Group, Camera RAW Image -------------------------------------------------------------------------- :: Comparison to qPDFView :: Both Lucide and qPDFView utilize the poppler library for rendering PDFs. Internal differences between the two program result in some rendering more quickly in one program vs the other. Overall, we feel that Lucide has a more OS/2-like - or native - feel to its interface, and is better suited to the operating system. Lucide also supports native OS2 printers while qPDFView requires CUPS The choice is left entirely to the user as to which is better suited to his needs. :: Requirements :: To install all prerequisites in one go from Arca Noae Package Manager, simply copy and paste the following string into the Quick install dialog: libc libcx libgcc1 libgcc-fwd libstdc++6 libsupc++6 poppler poppler-data libjpeg djvulibre uclip GBMDLL If you prefer the yum command line, please type yum install libc libcx libgcc1 libgcc-fwd libstdc++6 libsupc++6 poppler poppler-data libjpeg djvulibre uclip GBMDLL and press <Enter>.
