    Script to add empty pages

      Hi - I'm often supplied with pdfs as spreads. From these files I have to create single page pdfs for imposition. I create a new, non facing page document and run 'Mulitpageimporter 2.5' to bring the spread into a page at x+3, y=-3, giving me a correct sequence of odd number pages. I then adjust the 'allow pages to shuffle' option allowing me to drag a new page into position to face the existing page containing the imported pdf spread and export to pdf.

       

      This is okay for small documents, but I would like help with a script that would add the correct number of pages to the document (total document page number -2) and place them effectively as 'even' numbered pages eg every other page starting at page 2. If it could sort the shuffle option at start it would be good!

      btw: I've now discovered the 'map to pages' option in the 'Mulitpageimporter 2.5' which improves efficiency of above, but again only practical for documents with small number of pages.
