Whenever a pdf is open with qPDF (ver 2.3, guess the newest one), it creates in its same dir a xml file. Is there a way to prevent the creation of this file?. I surfed the settings but I could not find any clue about this.

Thanks.

I've got qpdf 2.3.0 and it generates a *.xml file for any opened *.pdf file, but the XML files are really small, so I don't worry about it.
Meanie's 200 page zbook3k.pdf creates a XML file that is only 442 bytes.
Most of the other XML files that I have are 422 bytes or smaller.
I keep all my PDF documents in a seperate folder, just for PDF files.
Once in awhile when I delete old PDFs, I also delete all orphaned XML files too.
EDIT, oh, by the way, the XML files store info about what page you are on when you close a PDF document.
It also "remembers" the zoom level for that document.

Thanks for your reply Jon_J

The weight is not the problem, is the tidyness. I like to keep my pdfs sorted in dirs, and I just want to keep the pdfs. When viewing thru a file manager, everything appears twice smile.gif

I was just wondering if there's a switch anywhere with "don't create xml files".

qPDF is nice, but without this, it will be better for me.

(any recent PDF reader suggestions are welcome -apart from Picsel-. I've searched but I just get old threads, leading to qPDF).

Thanks.

I'm bringing up an older post.
Qpdf2 must have a script file somewhere, because when I connect a CD-ROM full of PDF files to my Zaurus and open one, then page to the next page, I get this error, but I can click the [OK] button and continue.
It does this for each page that is opened in a multi-page PDF.
-----------------------------
QPdf was unable to
save your notes.
"No such file or directory"
-----------------------------
This is because the CD-ROM is read only.

Closing QPdf2, also outputs the same error as above.

moi,
In Qpdf prefs, change "Open file" from last view to first page.
That should do it.
