    Different object placement for even\odd pages when importing PDF

    daveb1960

      I have been tasked with importing multiple PDF files (each file has between 100 and 650 pages) and I am a complete newbie to Indesign/

       

      When I import a file (using the super cool MulipageImporter Script) I can place all the pages with the same offset (say -0.7,-0.7) which places the odd pages in the correct location, but the even pages need to be placed at (1,-0.7).  (the offsets will vary depending on the page size of the pdf)

       

      Does someone know of a script that allows this?

      Is there a modifcation that I can do to the MultipageImporter script that will allow this?

       

      The purpose of the shift is to have proper front to back impostion when printing these files through a laser printer, so that we can perfect bind into books.

       

      Thanks
