Saving merge setup for use again

Post by jdj420 » Wed Apr 29, 2015 5:21 pm

Hello, I am trying to figure out if there is a way to save the settings of a merge (including the documents) so i don't have to add them each time i need to merge the files together. I am currently using a program called pdfsam but my company won't support it.

Currently i merge a bunch of pdf files into one document so they are all grouped as one. Now whenever someone updates any of the documents included in the group i need to recompile the entire group to pick up the new version of the updated document. this happens very often and the only way i have been able to figure out to do it is by going through the wizard and selecting each of the documents every time i need to update the group. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi jdj420.

Thanks for the post - I'm afraid that there isn't any way to do this with the current release, but in the next version of PDF-Tools, it will be possible to create custom tools that would allow you to do this. We're hoping to release this late autumn/early winter, if all goes smoothly.

HTH!
