Delete source files

Post by simple » Fri May 07, 2021 12:10 am

Hi - I want to be able to use PDF-Tools to combine a number of PDFs, Word documents etc into a new file, and then delete the files that were used to create it. The result will be a single PDF.

Is this possible?

Hi, simple

If you are making use of Watched folders and custom tools in our PDF-tools batch processing utility, than yes, all of this would be possible.

Please follow the steps in the articles linked above to learn about how to do this.

Kind regards,

Thanks - I have made many custom tools.
I can't find an action that allows this, though??

Hi,

Now, you need to setup a folder monitor, as it was mentioned in the provided by my colleague Daniel article - Watched folders


..or you may start the tool directly:
