Rename Basic Editors section

I would rename this section in something like "Page Editors" or something like that, because that's what they really do.

I would leave the word "Editor" for software that can actually act on the content of a page (insert/move/delete objects).

So I would rename the "Advanced Editors" into "Editors".

The world of PDF editors is a weird one since they werent meant to be edited in the first place so I fully support some more clarity

> software that can actually act on the content of a page

How about we rename that section to exactly that, "Content editor"

> "Page Editors"

What do you think about "layout editor" which sounds a bit more clear to me.

Add k2pdfopt to the wiki ? An extremely usefull tool. Tough to build AUR package, but there's someone keeping up with the hard work, Not sure where to put it in the article.Not sure if it was suggested before.

Scaling pdf

I think it would be nice to discuss scaling pdf. I found a couple answers but found no supporting documentation in terms of how the posters found these answers.

Create a PDF from images

The man page of ImageMagick states "convert: Available for Backward compatiblity with ImageMagick's version 6 convert(1). Essentially, it is just an alias to a restrictive form of the magick(1) command, which should be used instead."

I think the wiki should recommend

$ magick input_1.jpg input_2.jpg Input_3.jpg out.pdf

The section PDF, PS and DjVu#Create a PDF from images uses gm convert, not convert. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 07:59, 3 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I put instructions for ImageMagick as well (note the command is magick convert, just convert is deprecated) Fhy (talk) 05:04, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
