This program merges the freehand annotations and bookmarks (notes) made on the Eee Note with the corresponding PDF as layers and comments. The source can be a backup done with the "Eee Note Sync" software or directly a PDF on your Eee Note. 1a) From backup: To use this program you have to backup the content of your Eee Note with "Eee Note Sync" software. Then start the program and select a PDF file in the backup folder "EeeNoteBackup" and define the target location and the name of the new PDF. 1b) From Eee Note: Simply connect your Eee Note in sync mode and exit the "Eee Note Sync" software, because it blocks the needed ports. Then start the program and click on the "Eee Note" button to choose the input source. Define the output. 2) Because the Eee Note displays extended margins in the reader, you can choose to generate a pdf with extended margins (no truncated notes). After that, click the "Merge Annotations with PDF" button to generate a new PDF with the annotations as layers. Additionally, Notebooks can be exported from the Eee Note and saved as PDF. If the option "use gifs from SD card" is selcted, the tool looks for exported gifs (single notebook pages exported by the option in the "Note" application on the Eee Note) on the SD card. INSTALL: -------- To use the option for "image analysis" the "gsdll32.dll" of GPL Ghostscript (greater v.8.64, 32-bit) is needed. 1) If you have not installed a 32-bit version of Ghostscript, download it from Ghostscript, Ghostview and GSview and install it. 2) Copy the "gsdll32.dll" from your installation of Ghostscript into the program folder of FPDFAM beside the "Free_PDF_Annotation_Merger_for_eee_Note.exe". 3) Now the option "image analysis" is available.
