instead of my .indd-filename, I’d like to output my .pdf-file-name in my pdfs.
So, it’d be easier to differentiate between succeeding versions, e. g.: …36.1.1.pdf, …36.1.2.pdf, …etc.
Assuming my .indd filename ends with …36.1.indd, I’d output my
- first .pdf as …36.1.1.pdf
- 2nd .pdf as …36.1.2.pdf
So it’s clear which motherfile it was generated from.
On Finder-level, it’s no problem to name the file, but I’d also like to have this .pdf-filename displayed in the pdf itself, next to the register marks, once opened on screen.
I can’t figure out how to do this.
Any hints would be much appreciated.
That line is part of the automatic File Information line. To have anything else, switch it off and place the correct text manually in your Slug Area. Insert a Filename variable without the extension, and type ".PDF" after it.
(Of course this does not automatically set the PDF Export output name to that same value. You will have to take care of that yourself.)
