Project README


Build Status

PdfJumbler simple tool to rearrange, merge, delete, and rotate pages from PDF files.



PdfJumbler requires a Java Runtime Environment (JRE), version 11 or above. You can download one at https://adoptopenjdk.net/.

Windows users can simply download and run the installer (setup-pdfjumbler.exe), which creates a start menu entry for PdfJumbler.

For Ubuntu (and probably Debian), you can use this command to install PdfJumbler:

curl -L https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mgropp/pdfjumbler/master/setup/ubuntu/install.sh | bash

Alternatively, there is a runnable jar file (just double-click), pdfjumbler.jar.

User Interface


The user interface is actually rather simple: pages can be moved around using drag&drop (or the keyboard, see below), and for more complex operations there's a second page list available to the left (just pull it out).

Keyboard Shortcuts

  • Ctrl+O Open file
  • Ctrl+S Save file
  • + Zoom in
  • - Zoom out
  • Alt+Up Move page up
  • Alt+Down Move page down
  • Del Delete page
  • Ctrl+Z Undo
  • Ctrl+Y Redo
  • Ctrl+R Rotate clockwise
  • Ctrl+Shift+R Rotate counter-clockwise

Command Line

PdfJumbler accepts pdf files as command line arguments.

Several settings can be changed using Java system properties:

  • pdfjumbler.editor: sets the editor plugin (if installed; previous plugins are no longer supported)

    • PDFBox: net.sourceforge.pdfjumbler.pdfbox.PdfEditor
  • pdfjumbler.renderer: sets the renderer plugin (if installed; previous plugins are no longer supported)

    • PDFBox: net.sourceforge.pdfjumbler.pdfbox.PdfRenderer
  • user.language: sets the program language (in case auto-detection doesn't work). So far, de (German), es (Spanish), ru (Russian) and en (English; default) localizations are available.
