Wish: Export parts of PDF as scalable images
Submitted by Frank Siegert
Assigned to poppler-bugs
I had initially filed this as a wishlist issue for my PDF reader, but was told that this is something which should be implemented within poppler, that's why I'm refiling it here:
In many PDF readers (e.g. okular) there exists the possibility to select some part of the PDF and export it as Text or PNG/JPG image.
It would be nice, if there was a possibility to also export to some scalable image format (eps, svg, ps, pdf, ...).
Acroread already gives this possibility by selecting an area and printing it (to ps, eps, pdf, ...). It would be great, if the open source readers/backend could provide something like this as well. Thanks!
