Merge pdfs with filenames

Post by JTU » Wed Dec 04, 2019 1:26 pm

How I get filenames when I merge many files?

I tried to use "Create PDF / Split/Merge PDFs / Split/Merge Documents / Actions with Objects / Add root bookmark with filename" to ON, but I can't see any changes.

Hello JTU,

Welcome to our forum.

You can set the file names from this menu:

Hi!

But this set the file name to "Save File" window, not to the PDF-print.

Hello Juha,


You asked about merging the files in the PDF Tools section, so I guessed you are talking about merging in the PDF Tools.

Please explain in detail how do you try to merge the files?


Regards.

Hi!
Sorry, the answer takes time...
Here is the picture:
4 File names are missing on PDF.png
The point is, left side on the picture:
I take some pictures to make quickly note.
Pictures name is short hint.

Right side on the picture:
If I send this note to somebody (=pictures), I want to make the PDF on those pictures.
The same three pictures are in the PDF.
My hints, alias picture names are missing. How I can get those on PDF?

Hi Juha,
you can use "Add root bookmark with filename" option.

Result pdf will contain bookmarks with source filenames:

Hi Denis!

I have used this option, but people doesn't open bookmarks view :cry:
Better place is "header", example File name in the left - page/pages to the right.
Thanks anyway!

Hello Juha,


I do not see an automatic way of doing this.


It seems that you have to do this manually or build something like a TOC:

Hi,
I've created new tool for you. See the attachment.
The tool contains Add header and footer action, that adds filename to page's upper left corner.
Then all files are merged to one document.
I hope it will help you.

Wow Denis, you are so close!
5 File names are on the picture.png
It would be best if the name is on top of the picture.
The second best thing is that the background of the text is white.

Can You do it?

Hi Juha,

If you creating PDF from pictures you can use
Create PDF from images tool.
Go to Create PDF from images action and click Options button or All Options label

Go to Image Labels
and setup text value (in our case it is [FileName] macros), its background and placement
