comment Merge pdf and remove pages in one pass
@Dan Glad to hear that! No, I don't think there's a setting for that. You can replace the bookmarks with one entry for each document (-b one_entry_each_doc) but that's it. I think this would be a great feature, though. If you've got the time, I'd suggest creating a feature request on sejda's bug tracker‌​. The dev team seems to be pretty active and I think you'd have a good chance at getting this implemented. If you create a feature request please do post it here. I'd be happy to voice some support on the bug tracker.

comment How to tame Linux responsiveness, memory, and paging
3 years later and this is still an issue on Linux. @crazy2be or user76871, I don't suppose you have found a solution in the meantime?

comment Spotlight search with context?
I am not familiar with OS X but on Linux I use pdfgrep and Recoll. Both apps seem to be on macports.

comment Annotating PDFs using Wacom tablet on Linux
Xournal, maybe? It does add the annotations as an additional layer to the PDF, though (no "proper" PDF annotations as specified in the format).

comment Is there a way to remove the superfluous line breaks in an Open Office document?
Try pasting the copied text as unformatted text (Should be Ctrl+Alt+V or Ctrl+Shift+V; I am using LO so I can't say for sure).

Briss is a fantastic piece of software but I agree with @Rik. You should expand on your answer.

Or rather create a new template based on the document and use it for future docs.

comment How to batch unlock multiple PDFs which have same known password?
On Linux you can use qpdf for the task. See here for a batch decryption script which can be easily integrated into the context menu of file managers like Nautilus.

Please see this Q&A for more information. The answer is valid both for manual bookmarks and automatical ones (e.g. last page viewed).

But later versions of Nautilus also got rid of the list view or any custom view modes for that matter.

comment How to save a section of a pdf
Well, it's Linux, so some things are admittedly tougher than on other platforms. Another method that just came to my mind is using a PDF printer to output a PDF file. With this I suppose you would be able to set the page range in the same manner as you would when printing a file. But I fear I can't help you with setting it up since I've never used one before. Other users might be able to do so, though. To anyone reading this: Feel free to compile an answer based on my suggestions (or other ideas for that matter).

comment How to save a section of a pdf
Check my out the answers over at AskUbuntu. The Q&A orimarily concerns Linux and Ubuntu but some of the tools shown there are cross-platform and should work on Windows as well (e.g. pdfsam).

Even though your answer didn't turn out to be the solution I was searching for, you still helped me and for that I am grateful. Have this bounty as a simple token of gratitude :).

comment Automating the choice between JPEG and PNG with a script
@MarcksThomas: Great idea, thank you! I added an alternative script based on your proposition. The ratios still need a bit of tweaking, but it works fine otherwise. There's just one problem with grayscale images. BMP sizes aren't calculated correctly for them and I just can't figure why. It's a minor issue, really, as almost all images I work with are in colour, but it's still annoying.

comment Automating the choice between JPEG and PNG with a script
I also did some test runs with pdfimages (with the -j parameter set). Out of ~300 images only 2 were recognized as jpeg. Everything else was saved as ppm, which is akin to the bmp format (lossless, uncompressed). Another advantage of the script I proposed is that it would be compatible with all image sources, be it extracted PDF figures or downloaded files. But thank you anyway!
