i will regularly be combining PDF documents. Each month I receive 2 documents: one in English, and another in Portuguese. Apart from the languages, the documents are arranged so that they are identical. A simple merge is not sufficient as the purpose of the merge is to facilitate language learning, so I need, for example, page one of the Portuguese document to become page 2 of the merged document. The idea being that each page of English text is followed by its Portuguese counterpart.
i once found code whereby this was done programmatically, but for the life of me a can't find it again. After a PC hard drive reset, I no longer have the code
can you help please?
This can be achieved using the insertPages command of the Document object.
If you're interested in a tool that allows you to do it very easily and without having to write the code yourself, check out this one I've developed: Custom-made Adobe Scripts: Acrobat -- Combine Even-Odd Pages
