    Print individual PDFs from Books

      Hi All
      Does anyone know a way or have a script that will print/export individual PDFs with appropriate file name from a book.
      I have 3 books each containing nearly 100 docs and don't want to have to open and print each one individually, but printing PDFs from a book will batch them up and give then the title of said book. can anyone help.

      Many thanks

          Done that for ages. Can it wait until after the weekend? It's on my production machine :-)<br /><br />If you just need a hint to get started, I think I did something like<br /><br /><pre>for (doc=0; doc<app.activeBook.bookContents.length; doc++)<br /><br />{<br /><br />   currentDoc = app.open (app.activeBook.bookContents[doc].fullName);<br /><br />   currentDoc.exportFile (ExportFormat.PDF_TYPE ...); // something more needed<br /><br />   currentDoc.close ();<br /><br />}</pre><br /><br />Untested and quoted partly from memory -- I can't recall the exact PDF parameters.
