Creating dynamic headers in Reportlab

When writing code to make a report, you never truly know what you are going to get into. In a recent Python project, I was using the excellent ReportLab libraryand things were going smoothly. But then I needed make a header that would appear on every page. This isn’t took bad – you just create a function that goes on the document when you build it. But the API doesn’t support that terribly well – the function that you give to the Document object takes the Document and the Canvas as the only para...

Adjusting PDf sizes in Calibre

For highlighting and taking notes with PDFs I use Xodo on my Win 10 laptop. I cannot find as good an editor for epub/Mobi files; so I have converted a couple of ebooks to PDF via Calibre to use in Xodo. However the resultant output is not too satisfactory. In Calibre I have adjusted the paper size and base font size several times, but before I drive myself mad, I thought that I'd ask if anyone here has some optimum settings for a 13" screen. I'd be grateful.

extra spaces in Kindle (e.g. Ganzhe i t swor t e) but not DC (e.g. Ganzheitsworte)

I scanned a German document at 600dpi. Then I used Briss to split each scanned page into two PDF pages. Then I ran Acrobat DC's OCR for 600dpi output. It worked, as can be verified by copying and pasting the text. When I send the PDF to Kindle, however, virtually every word has spaces within it. What in DC, e.g., was properly "Ganzheitsworte," when selected within Kindle is "Ganzhe i t swor t e". This renders Kindle's integrated dictionary useless. Ideas?

What can we learn from the abuse scandal in Pennsylvania?

There has been a whirlwind of reactions to the grand jury investigation in Pennsylvania which uncovered thousands of abuse cases over many decades and a pattern of denial and coverup that continued to imperil vulnerable children.  Several people offered their thoughts to the Café; below we offer some of those in hopes that we in the Episcopal Church might redouble our efforts to make church a safe and welcoming place.     We start with Tom Buechele, a retired (but still serving) Episcopal pries...

Problem with Bookmarks

Hello, I read mostly pdf books and magazines in my Ipad, using the apple app "ibooks", which I think is pretty easy to use. But I got this problem: I have bookmarks in several pdf files and when I want to go back to them I have to go in the file to see the bookmark. Is there a software, an app that has the ability to catalogue all the bookmarks in all the pdf files so I can see them all instead of going book by book and try to find which of the bookmarks I'm looking for? Thanks
