    PDF as Destination option, Merge PDF Files

    Merge PDF Files

    A little how to merge pdf files using LimagitoX File Mover.

    We prepared the following Source folder with 8 single PDF pages numbered from 1 to 8.

    Selected WIN as Source and added the folder above as Input.

    In the Schedule Setup select the Advanced Tab. Set ‘Source File Sort Order’ to ‘Filename ascending (A to Z)’.

    Set the File Name Filter to only include PDF files ( *.pdf ). Just to be sure.

    Add PDF as Destination

    In the PDF Setup screen, add a PDF Action. Set this action to ‘Output PDF File’. We also changed the ‘Description’ to ‘Merge PDF Files’.

    Select the ‘Output’ Tab and set the Output Directory. Enable ‘Merge Pages’ and select ‘Last Ascending’ as ‘Insert Pages Position.

    Select the ‘Rename’ Tab and enable ‘Rename Files during Copy/Move’.

    Renaming Setup. This one is very important. We need a UNIQUE filename as result for all source pdf files you want to merge.

    In our example we want to merge: IntroXFM.1.pdf until IntroXFM.8.pdf

    So for all of these 8 files we need a unique output file. We separated the source file in 3 parts. Each part was separated by a dot. As replacement we took the first en third part which results in a unique filename for all of the 8 source files (IntroXM.pdf). Because due to this renaming it finds the file already in the destination and will merge the next source pdf file to it.

    Result: Multipage PDF file in the Output folder.

     

    If you need any help, just let us know. Don’t hesitate to ask.

    PDF as Destination option, Print PDF Files

    Print PDF Files

    In version v2019.11.17.0 we’ve added an option to print PDF files.

    Don’t forget to add a Filename filter so only PDF files as Source will be handled (*.pdf).

    PDF as Destination. Multiple ‘PDF Actions’ can be added. Each Action can be Enabled/Disabled.

    There is a possibility to select the pages within the PDF Source File.

    • All Pages
    • Odd Pages
    • Even Pages
    • Custom Pages

    Some info about the ‘Custom Pages’ selection.

    • Separate the Pages using a comma ( i.e. 1,2,3 )
    • 0 = last page
    • -1 = last page minus 1
    • m = middle page(s)

    > Print Page 1 and 2 of a multi page PDF file as Source

    > Print Setup options Tab

    You can use the Default printer or select on of the available printer devices on your system.

    After selection click on the ‘+’ button. This will add the selected printer to the Device Name field. The Device Name field is used as custom printer when ‘Use Default Printer’ is disabled.

    As always, feedback would be much appreciated.

    PDF as Destination option, Split Pages

    PDF as Destination option

    Regarding version v2019.11.10.0

    On request we’ve added PDF as Destination. The primary goal was to split the pages of a multi page PDF file.

    Don’t forget to add a Filename filter so only PDF files as Source will be handled (*.pdf).

    PDF as Destination. Multiple ‘PDF Actions’ can be added. At the moment only ‘Output PDF File’ as Action is available. Each Action can be Enabled/Disabled.

    There is a possibility to select the pages within the PDF Source File.

    • All Pages
    • Odd Pages
    • Even Pages
    • Custom Pages

    Some info about the ‘Custom Pages’ selection.

    • Separate the Pages using a comma ( i.e. 1,2,3 )
    • 0 = last page
    • -1 = last page minus 1
    • m = middle page(s)

    > Split first and last page of Source multi page PDF file

    PDF Split Pages Setup

    > Split middle page(s) of Source multi page PDF file

    PDF Split Pages Setup

    When splitting a multi page pdf file a pre extension page number will be added to the output filename.

    i.e. MultiPage PDF File as Source:

    • Source Filename: MyMultiPagePdfFile.pdf
    • 150 pages

    > Resulting Output File when ‘Split Pages Number Length = 0 (automatic number length)

    • MyMultiPagePdfFile.001.pdf
    • ..
    • MyMultiPagePdfFile.150.pdf

    > Resulting Output File when ‘Split Pages Number Length = 1 (minimum number length of 1)

    • MyMultiPagePdfFile.1.pdf
    • ..
    • MyMultiPagePdfFile.150.pdf

    > Resulting Output File when ‘Split Pages Number Length = 2 (minimum number length of 2)

    • MyMultiPagePdfFile.01.pdf
    • ..
    • MyMultiPagePdfFile.150.pdf

    If you need another type of split pages naming then you can use the File Renaming option (Rename Tab).

    When ‘Split Pages’ is disabled a single multi page will be created in the output directory. It will contain the selected pages of the source file. Suppose your custom selection is set to ‘0,1,m’ then the multi page output file will contain the first, the last and the middle page(s) of the Source multi page file.

    As always, feedback would be much appreciated.
