Okular table selection mode is amazing

I case you didn't know ;)

Okular has a amazing table select mode where you select an area and Okular will auto detect rows and columns on it (you can fine-tune it afterwards) and then you can directly copy&paste to a spreadsheet :)

It's mostly tested on PDF files, but should work the same on any of the formats we support text extraction.

Update: This feature is not new, just i got to use it today ;) Video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8XWI06tltY

Okular Form Field auto-updating (Work In Progress)

You can see it in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCLFkpaW3Ug

As the description of the YouTube video says:

Form 14 updates from Form 13 values as defined by the PDF file.
There's a few bugs left:
* To make the page contents update i need to edit another form in the page of the form that is being auto updated
* The contents of the "editable" Form are not updated. (The form is actually not editable since it's readonly)

And also a pile of uncommited and unreviewed patches, and probably only works for very simple files like this one, but it's a start :)

Update: It works fine now and everything has been commited :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-zmHc3WUhs
