    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).


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


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

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


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


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

    If you need any help, please let us know.

    Best Regards,

    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.

    How-To Print PDF Files using PDF as Destination

    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.
