    Extracting the first page from all pdf's in a folder and save them to a new file

    ThomasBB Level 1

      Hi,

       

      As Bridge apparantly is unable to create a decent-looking PDF from a bunch of other PDF's, we're looking for alternative solutions. The problem is, that I haven't done much scripting in Acrobat.

       

      Pseudocode:

       

      Select Folder where PDF files are stored

      Create list of PDF files

      Get first page from each and add it to temporary new PDF

      Save temporary new PDF in high quality

       

      Would that be possible in Acrobat? And where would I start? I can't even find a Scripting Guide for Acrobat (like the ones for Illustrator and InDesign).. and there seems to be no sample scripts included either :-(

       

      Thanks,

      Thomas
