Is there a way to set up an action that uses the combine files function and some java script to merge pdf's based on part of their filename?
I'm a complete newbie...
folder containing pdf's in this format:
43 wellington st_20.pdf
43 wellington st_34.pdf
35 hampdon rd_4.pdf
35 hampdon rd_67.pdf
22 dover crt_11.pdf
output folder to contain merged pdf's as follows:
43 wellington st.pdf
35 hampdon rd.pdf
22 dover crt.pdf
Any help is much appreciated
You can't use the built-in combine files command to do it. You would need to use a combination of an Action and a script.
The Action would collect the file-paths of the files you want to merge and then the script, executed separately, will decide which files to merge and then perform the merge itself.
Would you know how to create a script to achieve this? As I mentioned I'm a complete newbie
Yes, I do, but it's not a trivial task. If you're interested in hiring someone to do it for you, feel free to contact me privately.
