Printing multiple of files to PDF

Post by fruck » Fri Oct 27, 2017 8:24 am

Hello,
I am using your ” PDF-XChange Standard V6 pdfSaver” and I do have one function that I don’t know how to solve.
I am constructing some electrical documentation for machines and want to “print” them as PDF. And it´s always multiple of files that will be printed. I have a script at the CAD program and it has been working without any trouble with the rival of you.
What is happening is that for every file I plot it come the window “save as”, that it is something that I would like to choose in the end or the beginning of the run.
Any solution for this?

Thanks in advance!
Per Fruck

Hell Per Fruck,

Welcome to our forums and thanks for your enquiry.
If your CAD application is sending those documents as separate print jobs - the default settings in our driver will mean that you will get asked for each of those prints separately to select where it has to be saved.

I presume you want to "merge" them all into one file - then please try making settings similar to these:
binder.png
And now all yuor print jobs will be merged together silently without you being asked for a file name at all.
You will of course need to move/rename the binder file between separate print batches, to make sure that you get the correct pages collected together each time.

Regards,
Stefan

Hello,

I had the same problem (Report Generator, 100+ PDF to one), the solution helped me. There was only one problem, I think you have to uncheck the "Run Application After Printing".

Saving as a new profile is recommended.

Suggestion: In future Versions it should be possible to choose a Filename before saving.

Regards
Carsten
