Batch Process to Remove Blank Pages

Nov 8, 2010 2:54 PM



We are using Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 to scan in a bunch of double sided documents and OCR them to a specific folder.  Most of the documents are double sided, some arent.  What I would like to do is to leave the scanner on double sided to scan in all documents, what this does of course is on single page documents it will scan in a blank page on the "other" side.


Is there a way within Adobe Acrobat 9 pro to remove this blank pages, preferrably with Batch processing?  I have tried to use the Preflight to and remove empty pages, but it didnt seem to work???  Should it?  Anybody else have any experience with this?

    Actually, PDF page content that is "empty" and a "blank" page (of the sort you describe) are not the same.


    You may find that someone will have to view the 2-sided PDFs and, in the Pages panel, select all the blank pages and then delete them.

    Be well...
