Looking for recommendations: Does anyone know any free PDF software (preferable FLOSS) that can add contents/chapter marks to PDF documents? Ideally runs on Mac (with binaries available); could get by with running in ubuntu.
It should also not completely fall over with files around 1GB.
@s0 are you looking for something with a graphical user interface or would you be ok with doing these changes using programming techniques?
@elmiko command line would be ok as long as I don’t need to build from source (either available on Homebrew or 1st party binaries provided)
@s0 if the pdfs in question aren't locked, you might be able to use LibreOffice to edit them, it has limited ability to add content and metadata.
evince is another tool that can do /some/ editing, mostly around annotations and highlights. it probably doesn't do what you want, but might be worth a look.
there are a few open source libraries that allow much deeper editing, but they would require some sort of code be written.
If you're not opposed to #Java, then #jPdfBookmarks seems to be made for just that?
@s0 If I remember correctly you might need pdftk to remove passwords from "protected" PDFs. That also has a java version which should work on Mac (assuming Macs still support Java…)
@s0 have you tried xournal? I've used it to add images into a document, by I don't know all the modifications xournal can do.
