Import Double paged PDF - Script

Hello,

 

I need to add text on the bottom of every pages of a 100+ pdf.

 

I found three scripts that do a great job, but I have an issue with all of them.

The PDF i'm working with is made by InDesign but I don't have the original file.

 

The first and last pages of the PDF are single pages, but all the rest are double pages.

My issue is that the script is importing a double page (from the pdf) inside a single (Indesign) page.

 

The script is treating the double page as one image, but it should fit 2 pages.

 

How can I change that?

 

Thank you in advance

I got an idea, if I could transorm the double-sided PDF into a single-sided PDF, the script would work just fine.

 

Only tool I found for that is this website : https://online2pdf.com/en/double-sided-pdf-to-single-sided-pdf#

If you have other tools please let me know 🙂

Is it the same text on all the pages? If so, it would probably be easier to use the watermark in Acrobat.

For the Indesign, are you placing it into the spread and not the individual pages? If not, that could be the issue.
