Bernd, we are searching for a way to convert multiple Word files as well, but can you clarify with more steps how we 'create a new batch sequence'? Was not able to figure out how you do this. We have Adobe Acrobat Standard 9. Really appreciated if possible!
Thanks Bernd, your instructions worked for me. I was a little confused at first as I was trying to work out what command to use - but there is no command! You ignore point 1. and just do 2. and 3.
For those who find this forum through Google if you want to merge a number of Word Documents into a single PDF go to file - create PDF - from multiple files. This will convert seperate Word docs into one PDF.
Hello, could you tell me how to batch convert multiple word documents to pdfs in acrobat pro 9.5.3? It doesn't seem to recognize word as a supported source file. Thank you for any help you can give! Jamie
I am having the same problem- I have Acrobat XI pro- and i haven't been able to figure out how to batch convert word files to PDF. I actually need to convert them to PDF/A, but I would be happy to at least get the first step of converting them to PDF, because I think I could figure out from there how to use the preflight option to convert the PDFs to PDF/A
Just me nattering here; but --
Something is different with Acrobat XI Pro and Office 2013.
Open Acrobat XI Pro's Preferences. Select the Category "Convert to PDF". Note that you may not have any MS Office applications listed.
Without that you cannot create an Action to operate on a "supported" file (format) as Word, Excel, etc won't be present.
As a data point:
--| Windows 8 (64-bit)
--| Acrobat XI Pro (via a TCS v4 subscription)
--| Office 2013 applications (via an Office 365 Home Premium subscription)
Acrobat's PDFMaker is present and functional for:
--| the Excel install
--| the Word install
--| the Outlook install
--| the PowerPoint install
For MS Access, reports can go to PDF or XPS via the MS publish to PDF routine (or exported to a Word rich text file or printed via the Acrobat installed Adobe PDF virtual printer).
For One Note Print to PDF using the Adobe PDF virtual printer.
