As of v1.35, k2pdfopt has a nice debugging option to clearly show you how it is interpreting your PDF file by marking the regions on it in the order it chooses to display them. The command-line option -sm (show markings) does this, or you can select "sm" from the interactive menu. This will generate a file name ending in "_marked.pdf". For example, if you process a file called mydoc.pdf, the markings will be shown in the file mydoc_marked.pdf. An example of the marked output is shown below for the IEEE two-column template.

Windows GUI checkbox for previewing k2pdfopt markups. If the "Generate marked-up source" box is checked, the preview window will show the marked-up source pages, otherwise it will show the output (converted) pages.
