Hello, I am creating PDF files of Autocad drawings to send off to a print service. Whenever we print the CAD drawing to PDF we use the same number as the page, simply 1, 2, 3, 4...etc. This works well for ordering the PDFs in a folder, but when actually merging all of the files into a large PDF file, say 135 pages) it orders them 1, 10, 11, 12, 13, 24, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 2, 20...etc. This makes it very inconvenient to re-order them. I attempted to disable logical number ordering, but this didn't have any effect on the outcome.
I have seen somewhere that I may be able to use Java to put a script in to order my pages properly, but as of yet have had no luck on that route.
We have been using the page numbering system for a while and changing to something that would force the proper order into adobe would be rough on us as when we want to look at just page 4 of the drawing file in PDF we just open "4." It would be easier if we had a way for adobe to properly order them instead of us changing the way we name our PDF files into something that the "logical" numbering system puts in the correct order (1, 1.1, 1.2,1.3, etc) not even sure that would work for something with 135 pages.
Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
