ePDFView is actually a GTK Pdf reader that is in the repos. My base set of features will have the goal of mimicing what that does.

 

Thanks to python being awesome I was able to base my start on ePad so I have the core set up and functional with tabs and such already:

eeVee gained bookmark support today:

Sadly code I'm using in eeVee requires EFL 1.14 - so it won't be in the main bodhi repo for a little while until this update comes down the pipe.

I've added eeVee to the main repo, but it needs EFL/Elm versions from the gitcha branch to be fully functional.

installed and looks ok. I noticed no icon and trying to set one via everything did not work. I found it installed under office section. When I open a pdf that has over 150 pages, the next page button only gives me a one page advance. The previous page button seems to work fine. Also would be nice to have a print option. Noticed it will not let you fill in any pdf forms that have editable fields as well.


If you want my Bodhi and you think I'm sexy Come on, sugar, let me know.

I doubt this will ever support fillable forms or printing. It is going to be like epad in that it will be a "simple by design" tool.

 

What behavior are you expecting from the "next page" button if it isn't going to the next page?

 

What icon set are you using? eeVee has an icon under the default Numix icon set Bodhi 3.0 uses.

Next page only gives advance of one page. If you have a 3 or more pages it will not go past page 2. I figured my icon theme was the issue, but when I try to add a icon myself it will not take effect. I'm wondering why make a viewer then? If you can not print from it? What would be the reason for using it? I dont want to sound harsh, I just dont understand.

For viewing PDF files. I have a need to browse dozens of different PDFs for work every week, but I very rarely have to print them out.

That seems like a reasonable request for the next page button and is likely the expected behavior. I'll look into changing that.

I see. Also I uploaded a screen cast to show what I'm talking about. It should be ready for viewing. If you let me know I will remove it once you look at it.

 

Removed video link.
