    Q&A 29: Is it possible to split out Page 1&2 of a PDF

    Q: Is it possible to split out Page 1&2 of a PDF, rename it and move it to a location but also rename the rest of the PDF and move that to a different location?

    A: Yes this is possible. We’ve added a couple of screenshits to get you started.

    >Add PDF as Destination:

    Limagito File Mover PDF as Destination

    > You’ll need to add 2 PDF Actions. The first Action will split the first 2 pdf files to the output directory.

    >The second Action will output all pages, except the first and second, to a single pdf file in the output directory.

    >Optionally you can rename the output pdf files:

    > We renamed IntroXFM to Output in our example:

    Limagito File Mover PDF rename setup

    > The source is a WIN directory. It contains a multipage pdf file called IntroXFM.pdf.

    Limagito File Mover PDF source files

    > The result in the output directory:

    Limagito File Mover PDF destination files

    • Output.01.pdf contains the first pdf page from multipage pdf source file
    • Output.02.pdf contains the second pdf page from multipage pdf source file
    • Output.pdf contains all pdf pages from multipage pdf source file except first and second

    > RunTime Log result:

    PDF as Destination, new rotation option added in LimagitoX File Mover

    In version v2020.3.22.0 we added new PDF as Destination options (Page Boxes, Rotation, ..).

    • You can add multiple PDF Actions. These actions will be processed as they appear in the list (Top to Bottom).

    LimagitoX-Pdf-Rotation-Pages

    • The first rotation action setup is to rotate all Odd pages 90°.

    LimagitoX-Pdf-Rotation-Pages-Setup

    • In this example the second rotation entry will rotate all Even pages 270°.

    • The third action will change the dimensions of the Media Box.

    LimagitoX-Pdf-Page-Boxes

    • It will read the dimensions of the Trim Box and use them for the Media Box.

    LimagitoX-Pdf-Page-Boxes-Setup

    • The last action will save the result to the output PDF file.

    If you need any help, please let us know.

    How-To Merge PDF Files using PDF as Destination

    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.
