Page Exporter Utility Page Range as One PDF

Hi!

 

I've been testing Page Exporter Utility among other things to automate exporting multiple versions of multi-page PDFs with different layer combinations. My document includes multiple versions on different spreads, that all need to be exported separately.

 

Using this script (or adapting / adding to), is there a way to export the pages defined in 'Page Range' as one PDF, as opposed to the pages in the defined range export as separate PDFs?

 

E.g. Currently, if I type pages 2-4, I will have 3 PDFS (P2, P3 and P4), but I would like to have one PDF containing three pages.

 

Manually combining the pages after the fact would negate the time saving.

 

Cheers!

 

Thanks!

Linsey

I think you need custom script - as you will need to specify which pages & which layers should be exported together or separately ?

Can automate anything - as long as it doesn't require A.I. 😉 and even then 3rd helping hand can be created 😉

The Page Exporter Utility does allow for custom layer exports, this part works really well. There is also a section that allows the user to input a page range, but it only exports each page as a separate PDF, not mulitple pages in one PDF.

Bumping to see if anyone has any insights on this. I've been trying bits and bobs, but I'm no expert!
