Hello,

I recently updated my InDesign to the newest version, and now, the place multi-page pdf script will only place the pdfs at the end of my indesign file as opposed to on the page i select it to import onto. How do i fix this?

Good news, the bug we posted has been acted upon by Adobe and is reported to be fixed in the latest version of InDesign.

Hi Robert,

Were you able to take a relook at the script?

 

Thanks,

Chris

Yeah, but forgot to post an update, sorry.

 

It works perfectly fine for me - in every possible combination - active document, from 1st/any page, new document - I can see it imports 1st page again - but then it deletes it so in the end there is no extra 1st page at the end?

 

The only thing I've found is that the first line:

 

myStep = false

 

needs to be set to true - otherwise, in the new document it will import on every 2nd page - but I'll update the Dialogs in a moment.

Hi Robert,

The script works great – except that it places the 1st page of the PDF again after placing all pages of the PDF.

 

Thanks,

Chris

You mean it will place, let's say, 10 pages of the 10 page PDF and then again 1st page as 11th page?

To be honest, I was testing on a big PDF and never let him finish so will have to check it again. 

 

Thanks for letting me know.

Hi Robert,

Please try the following steps:

  1. First create a 10 page InDesign document.
  2. Run your script and choose the document you just created. Click OK.
  3. Click OK in the Choose a Page dialog.

Result: The 1st page of the PDF is repeated at the end - that is, it gets placed again at the end after placing all pages of the PDF.
