Is it possible to print all open files at once?
So without selecting the tab's?

Hello petwes,

Welcome to our forums.
There is a "Print All" button in the list of commands in the Editor - but this is still inactive. It will be enabled in a future build.
In the mean time you can use the attached script file.
Extract the archives contents in
C:\Users\<<YOUR WINDOWS USERNAME>>\AppData\Roaming\Tracker Software\PDFXEditor\3.0\JavaScripts
(if the JavaScripts folder does not exist - create it)
And then restart the Editor.

This should result in a new button appearing in a separate toolbar in the Editor. When you click that - it will print all of your files, but show you the print preview window for each, so you will need to click the OK button for each file you want to print. If you want to "print all" silently - open the .js file in e.g. notepad and uncomment the indicated line.

Regards,
Stefan

Hi,

I'd also like to say thanks for the script, it works great! Saves quite a bit of time. Would be even better if you could just hit the print button once without having to worry about the Print dialog box appearing for every document. Do you know if this feature will still be implemented? It seems like this post was from a long time ago and the icon is still greyed out.

One more thing, can I change the java script icon from a puzzle to a printer icon to make it easier for people to know what the icon does?

Thanks again!

Hi blutackey,

Thanks for the post - Icons can be supplied for JavaScript buttons, but it's not as easy as it would seem. I would recommend that you simply add the cName & cLabel lines to the JavScript, e.g.
Image

If you did want to add an icon, you would need to create the icon file yourself. It can then be supplied to the script as per the oIcon property of the app.addToolButton method described here:

HTH!

The original question is more then 4 years old, the quoted text more then 1.5 years. Something new with this? Seem to be still inactive ....

Hello Peter2,

While we have not made much progress on this front yet, it is still something that we are looking at the possibility of in the future. Thus while I cannot give any sort of a timeline, we have certainly not ruled out implementing it.

Kind regards,

I believe there was a script for a PrintAll alternative here somewhere. May I have the link AND is it still up-to-date?

Thank you!

Hi misterbobthetomato,

Thanks for the post - Stefan's original reply (second post in this thread) is still the correct script. Scripts should always continue working between versions, as we keep our JavaScript API compatible with the Adobe JavaScript API and any changes would go against the industry standard and break compatibility.

Thanks,
