Using Acrobat X.
I have a 142 page catalog, the bulk of which needs to be diced up into 2-page PDFs. I am familiar with the "Extract" process under tools, but that means a lot of repetitive, manual work. What I'm looking for is some kind of batch process or a similar function as this kind of thing will be happening frequently.
Ideally, I'd like to be able to just say "extract pages: 9 & 10 save, 11 & 12 save, 19 & 20 save, etc.", and press "Go".
Things like this are relatively easy in photoshop with actions and batching, but I am unsure how to do something like this in Acrobat.
The catalog itself is created in InDesign. Should I be barking up that tree instead?
Any help appreciated!
In Acrobat this kind of repetitive task can be done with a script.
I have developed a script that allows you to specify the number of pages (2, in your case) and the first and last pages to process, and it does the rest for you.
