Did you try the crop tool?
Thanks for the suggestion. I haven't used crop before as I haven't had a need, but having had a look I can see how it might work.
I guess the workflow would be:
- Open the original document
- do 4 "crop and saveas" operations to end up with each page as an individual file.
- Combine those files into one PDF.
Have I got that right?
The issue I would have to resolve is that the original content would still be part of the combined file, making it considerably larger than it would otherwise be. Is there a means of permanently removing the hidden content? I suppose I could print each individual cropped page to PDF (I'm using Acrobat 9.5), but that is another operation, and with 200+ files to manipulate I would really like to streamline it as much as possible.
That looks like exactly what I need -thanks very much. I downloaded spliiter.js and also the installer and it all seems to work as advertised. That is going to save me a lot of work. Still 200+ files, but at least the processing will be simplified.
One very basic question - if I hadn't used the installer, how would I actually get the script to execute?
