Delete all the pages except the first one in batch

Post by pinguinone »

Good morning,
I have a lot of pdf files (more than 200) that have for each file a variable number of pages. For example the first one could have 10 pages the second one could have 12 pages the third 2 and so on.
What I need is either:
  • Delete for every pdf file all the pages except the first one
    Extrapolate in a new file (with the same name of original file but in different directory) the first page
Obiuvsly by a command line or something similar but in batch because otherwise I will take a long time to do that.
Is it possible? Is there any suggestion for do that?

Thanks

Gianluca

Hi Gianluca,

you can use the |Extract Pages" Tool in PDF-Tools with a custom page range of simply "1" to extract the first page of your source documents and save the results to new files with matching file names.

I believe that will do what you are asking for.

Hello,
thanks for your prompt answer. Is it possible to do such the same thing but with PDF-XChange editor? If no, is there any discount for an existing (recently renewed) user of PDF X-change editor?

Hello, pinguinone,

Unfortunately, no. The PDF Editor is not meant for batch processing.

You can find the price for the upgrade in the account you have on our website, under the Upgrade Options section :
