I am trying to automate a repetitive task, but I'm not sure it can be done in Adobe. I routinely insert technical drawings and specs into a PDF template. These different documents are always inserted into the same categories (Clarifications, Drawings, Product Specs, etc). I was wondering if there were a way to write a script to automate these tasks.
E.g. The script would execute by determining which files are which and would then insert them in the proper category. A subsequent action would be to re-number pages and update the table of contents.
Am I asking too much of the software?
It might be possible, but there's a lot of information missing here, and without seeing the actual files it's impossible to say for sure whether it can be done or not.
If you can share some sample files with us, that would be helpful. At any rate, it would require the development of a custom-made script.
