Check out the "File Name Stamper" Action at acrobatusers.com in the Action Exchange Gallery-
Hope this helps,
Hi Dimitri, I looked at this, but it seems to be about stamping the files name, within the contents of the PDF? i.e. stamping.
File Name Stamper
The Acrobat X File Name Stamper Action automates the process of stamping:
• File Name
• File Name + Date
• Document Title
• User-entered text
Or am I wrong?
If the prefix is static, you can just create a blank action and in the File Save options specify the prefix you want to add to the processed files.
If you want it to be dynamic, like the current date, you'll need to use a script and the saveAs method.
However, you don't need Acrobat at all for this. Any standard file renaming tool should be able to do this.
Regarding your second question: it's not possible to trigger an Action in Acrobat from an external application.
You are correct and I am the one in error for misreading your question- sorry. Guess I read too fast and thought you wanted to add the file name to the docs not rename the files themselves. That Action is only for stamping, again my bad
All good Dimitri, thanks anyway.
Try, thanks for this info. Any ideas on how I can get started? I have done a little JS programming, but never anything in Adobe, so not sure where to start?
There are very good tutorials on AcrobatUsers.com.
