       pdfjam-slides3up - put presentation slides onto 3-up pages

       pdfjam-slides3up  [--pagenumbering  SWITCH]  [OPTION [OPTION] ...] [SRC
       [PAGESPEC] [SRC [PAGESPEC]] ...]

       pdfjam-slides3up converts PDF files whose pages are presentation slides
       (with  4:3 aspect ratio) into 3-up versions suitable for making a hand-
       out with space for handwritten side notes (for example).   By  default,
       the 3-up pages do not themselves have page numbers.

       To  put  page  numbers on the output pages, use either '--pagenumbering
       true' or, for example, '--pagenumbering 3.4cm' to place the  page  num-
       bers  a  bit lower on the page than the default position.  The value of
       'SWITCH' must be either 'true', 'false' or a dimension that can be used
       by LateX. (To be precise, it's the value of the 'footskip' dimension in
       LaTeX; by default, pdfjam-slides3up sets that  as  3.1cm,  which  works
       pretty  well  in  conjunction  with both '--paper a4paper' and '--paper

       If no source PDF file ('SRC') is specified, input is  from  /dev/stdin.
       If 'PAGESPEC' is omitted, all pages are processed.

       Source files are processed sequentially into a single output unless the
       '--batch' option is used, in which case they are processed separately.

       pdfjam-slides3up is a simple wrapper for pdfjam, which provides a front
       end  to  many of the capabilities of the pdfpages package for pdflatex.
       A working installation of  pdflatex,  with  the  pdfpages  package,  is

       pdfjam-slides3up  operates  on  one or more PDF files, and (either with
       the '--batch' option or with '--outfile DIR' where 'DIR'  is  a  direc-
       tory) the resulting files have the suffix '-3up' applied to their names
       by default.  To change the suffix, use the '--suffix' option, for exam-

              pdfjam-slides3up   --suffix  '1x3'  --batch  myslides1.pdf  mys-

       will result in files named 'myslides1-1x3.pdf' and 'myslides2-1x3.pdf'.

       By default a narrow line frame is printed around every slide.  This can
       be turned off if required by using the option '--frame false'.
