open pdf with range

When a pdf is opened in gimp, there is the opportunity to select a range. Does this load just a part of the pdf page? If so, how is the range specified? Or maybe it loads certain pages?

Do you have an example of the PDF you’re trying to open? Is it a multi page document?

A link to the PDF would be helpful, but it sounds like GIMP is giving you the opportunity to open a range of pages, that is, a sequence of adjacent pages.

Hope this helps. Rick

Thanks Rick.
I have convinced myself that it is referring to a range of pages. As such, probably useful, but not what I had in mind.

Yes.
What did you have in mind exactly?

I thought I could display part of the page, perhaps with top left and bottom right coordinates.
I've used a different method now.

A common approach would be to load the entire PDF file (all or some pages of it) in the resolution you want, and then crop it to the parts you want.

Sure, and that was my approach to date. I was going to try to automate this for a repetitive task with something I download from the web and crop before saving it.

imagemagick (or netpbm on Linux) can automate this. The croping, if to a fixed size, could also be scripted.

Yes, I might have got around to scripting, but I've left this question now. Thanks for your interest.
