PDF Masher – Convert PDF Into HTML, Optimize For eBook Readers


PDF Masher has been developed to remove clutter, like, bloated headers and footers, irrelevant pages from PDF documents to make them ready for your eBook reader. Since many eBook readers don’t have options to optimize the PDF document viewing, it becomes frustratingly hard to first zoom out the page and then start reading the text off the e-book reader screen, which is in some cases, doesn’t appear clear on the screen.

PDF Masher not only transforms PDF document into HTML format but allows changing the way you read documents on your eBook reader. It provides convenient options to remove and adjust headers and footers text, remove selected text elements from the pages, change text state to title, footnote and header, etc. The columns headers let you sort the PDF document by page, rows, columns, font size, text length, state, and document text.


You can use these sorting options to quickly remove headers, footers, and useless text from the document. For instance, if you want to remove headers, all that is required is to click Y column to sort the headers. Now select all the headers and click Ignore. Make sure that Hide Ignored Elements option is enabled. Once you’re done with changing the document layout and editing document headers and footers, switch to Build tab to finally view your edited document in default browser is HTML page. It also offers some post processing features to reveal and edit the markdowns.
