Re: getting rid of Windows registry entries

henrywho wrote:Or search in the following order:
1) same directory or specific subdirectory of convert.exe/magick.exe
2) environmental variable (e.g. MAGICK_CONFIGURE_PATH)
3) HKCU
4) HKLM
I fully agree. This would solve the problems I mentioned and I think this easy to achieve.

getting rid of Windows registry entries

IM currently requires a registry entry either in HKLM or HKCU where the locations of the delegates are stored. This requirement makes it impossible to install several programs that use IM: Assume program A as well as Program B use IM to convert images. So what happens is that the user installs - fir...

Re: regression - convert fails when convert pdf to png

@donovaly: Your issue seem to be different. IM cannot find GS in your case. So with your install convert should fail for all pdfs (this requires GS) - and not only for some pdfs, as reported above. Yes, this was my fault. I had a broken installation. That a part of my PDFs worked had other reasons....

IM limitation and the Windows registry

Dear developers, I use IM for an open source programs on Windows (namely for LyX). I have an installer that installs the whole bundle of LyX, Ghostscript and IM. It works fine so war, but only if the installation is done with admin permissions. But for none of the programs admin permissions are real...

Re: regression - convert fails when convert pdf to png

The bug is that the -define pdf:use-cropbox=true switch does not work anymore. Using convert -define pdf:use-cropbox=true -depth 8 -flatten "pdf:testgraph.pdf" "png:testgraph.png" fails but convert -depth 8 -flatten "pdf:testgraph.pdf" "png:testgraph.png" works. This regression has been introduced a...

Re: option "-define pdf:use-cropbox=true" partly broken

We grab the bounding box properly but unlike Postscript we cannot yet determine how to translate the PDF as required by the bounding box (for your image about -50,-50). For Ghostscript we inject the Postscript statement "-50, -50 translate". It may take awhile before we properly fix this problem fo...
