Gemini quickly converts any size PDF into other formats enabling the user to reuse the content in other ways. Whether to post a user manual on the internet, an article from a newspaper, reformat a financial report, or rework an entire book, Gemini saves time and effort.The product includes a stand-alone application and, for Windows users, a Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat. Using the stand-alone application Acrobat is not needed but, for Acrobat owners, all of Gemini's extraction facilities are available from Acrobat's main menu. The Macintosh version is available as a stand-alone application only.Gemini exports the text within a PDF in a variety of formats including HTML, RTF, eBook, and Palm Doc format (for Palm based PDAs). It supports all standards of PDF plus password-protected documents (40- and 128-bit encryption compatible with Acrobat v6.X).In addition to text formats, Gemini exports photos and graphics as JPEG, EPS, TIFF, PNG, and BMP. Export embedded images or render artwork or entire documents at a range of sizes, resolutions, and color depths. Using the powerful batch-export feature for example, it's a simple task to generate thumbnails for each page from hundreds of documents in one operation or to convert an entire document into a multipage TIFF.Features: • convert PDF to ASCII, Open eBook, HTML, Palm Doc, or RTF (for MS Word);• convert tables into text, HTML, RTF, and SYLK (for spreadsheets);• reflow and de-hyphenation of text;• advanced character remapping for problem documents;• export images as JPEG, TIFF (multipage), PNG, BMP, or EPS with scaling;• retain clipping paths and OPI names with Photoshop-compatible EPS;• render PDF at a variety of resolutions and color depths• customize HTML headers, footers, frames, color, and navigation links;• retain page layout in ASCII, HTML, and RTF;• full support for double-byte characters and Unicode output;• preserve reading order in and across pages using article threads;• preserve hypertext links in HTML, eBook, and RTF;• batch conversion;• automatic recognition of tables created in tagged PDFs; and• conversion of Hebrew documents into logical and visual HTML.Gemini is able to retain the layout of PDF pages in nearly all of its supported output formats. Whether simple text, RTF, or HTML output, Gemini will use whatever techniques are available in that format to mimic the layout of the original pages. Gemini includes a brand new system for retaining layout using style sheets in HTML.Gemini outputs text in a way that makes it easy to edit. Add site-specific information or alter words or phrases in the text, and find the output clean and easy to understand. The more advanced HTML output formats will even create a separate CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) file. Edit this file to quickly alter the look and feel of the entire document.When documents are already marked up for reading with article threads, Gemini will output them on an article-by-article basis so there is no need to spend time splitting up pages of text. It quickly and accurately combines fragments of articles split across pages, reflowing the text complete with any images and tables as a single entity. Gemini will also produce a list of hyperlinks taking the reader to each article in turn. Gemini also includes the tools needed to add article threads.When outputting HTML, Gemini will preserve hypertext links from the original PDF. These can be links to pages, to other documents, or to URLs. If the document has bookmarks, Gemini can output them as hyperlinks. In HTML, it can present the bookmarks side by side with the pages using frames for easier navigation. If the document has no bookmarks, Gemini will create a set of bookmarks by looking at titles and headings throughout the document a real timesaver when converting long documents.Gemini is fully able to support documents containing double-byte fonts and will output Unicode equivalents of character codes whenever it is required. The Windows version also offers a host of output text encodings such as Shift-JIS and Big-5 in addition to the standard and UTF-8 encodings supported by the Macintosh version.Sophisticated image-scaling features enable the user to specify minimum and maximum sizes for image output. This is an asset when converting documents for internet usage where large images mean slow downloads. Instead of the user having to make these adjustments, Gemini takes care of it all.Images can be output as Photoshop-compatible EPS together with any clipping that was applied in the PDF. The output is fully compatible with Photoshop, QuarkXPress, and Adobe InDesign, and, by including complex clipping paths, save time and effort in re-masking. EPS is also the best way to ensure maximum color fidelity when transferring images into other applications.If PDFs contain OPI information, Gemini can export the images with their original names the names used for the image files at the time the PDF was created. Optionally interrogate individual images by right-clicking the mouse button while over an image.Entire PDFs can be rendered into multipage TIFFs. This is a variant of TIFF that can contain multiple images in a single file and is widely used as a format for fax machines. Gemini can render pages as bitmaps, dithered-bitmaps, grayscale, RGB, or CMYK images at a range of resolutions from 72 to 1200 DPI.Some PDFs are constructed with bad font encodings which means no software will be able to export the contents correctly. Gemini offers a powerful and flexible solution to this problem with its new character-map facility. Using the character map (not available on Macintosh), remap characters from a selection of text in the document to any other Unicode character. Browse all the character shapes stored by a font within the document and change any or all of the mappings with ease. All re-mappings are remembered so that in the next instance the user wants to extract from the document, or another like it, time will not be spent making tedious, manual corrections. Get useful content from documents that previously could not be exported.Since Gemini is now both a Plug-in (Windows only) and a stand-alone application, it merges all the functionality of previous versions of Gemini and Gemini Solo into one product.Manufacturer: Iceni Technology Ltd.
