Hi,

Try the action wizard included in the attached file or directly this script from the console:

d0=new Date();
starting=util.printd("mm/dd/yy – hh:MM:ss tt",d0);
var addBlankPageAfter=[];
for (var p=0; p<this.numPages-1; p++) {
	console.clear();
	console.println("Process starting: "+starting);
	console.println("Processing the page #"+(p+1)+"/"+this.numPages);
	var numWords=this.getPageNumWords(p);
	for (var i=0; i<numWords; i++) {
		var ckWord=this.getPageNthWord(p, i, true);
		if (this.getPag

This can be done with a script, if there's a way to identify where each document ends. Are there bookmarks pointing to the start of each document, for example?

	var txt=addBlankPageAfter.length+" blank page"+plurial+" added.\r\r";
} else var txt="No page found in this document.\r\r";
df=new Date();
ending=util.printd("mm/dd/yy – hh:MM:ss tt",df);
console.println("\rProcess ending: "+ending);
temps=(df.valueOf()-d0.valueOf())/1000/60;
var theMinutes=parseInt(temps);
var theSeconds=(temps-theMinutes)*60;
var theSeconds=parseInt(theSeconds*10)/10;
var theTime="";

	else var theTime=theTime+" "+theSeconds+" seconds";
}
var theTime=theTime.replace(/^\s+|\s+$/gm,"");
txt+="Process starting: "+starting+"\rProcess ending: "+ending+"\rProcess duration: "+theTime;
console.clear(); console.show();
console.println(txt);
app.alert(txt,3);

Here is the result of a test I did:

Strange!

You execute the script from the console and the error comes from line #1 whereas the txt variable shoud come at the end of the script!

Did you copy/paste the entire code in the console then select all and ENTER key of the numerical panel?
