@Gert – the order of the douments in a book file can be changed by script.
What I do not get here is the order of documents. Is it alphabetically? I assume not. Is it by selection order, if you select the files to add them? Could you prepare an Excel file with the right order as a starting point?
And no, I do not know a script, that would do this. But I'm sure it can be written.
@laubender - We get a bunch of printed files back which the client has put in the right print order, then we create the book file and add the whole lot by selecting the files. If we would have to make a Excel list first, it would take up too much time, but it was an idea I was playing with.
But surely there's no fixed order for filed in a folder. They can be
arranged alphabetically, by date, by size, etc., and all this from top
to bottom or vice versa. The order of files in a folder cannot be
changed by dragging and dropping.
