Hi,

I am using the PlaceMultipagePDF.jsx sample script provided using Window->Utilities->Scripts->Application->Samples->JavaScript->PlaceMultipagePDF.jsx

and when the size of PDF exceeds 10-15 MB, it takes lot of time 5-10 mins to place.

Is there any method to optimize this? I need to do it using CEP extensions.

Hi devs27984525,

I think you could cut the time placing PDFs if you turn off InDesign Live Preflight temporarily for example.

It could be also a matter of rendering time depending of the complexity of every single PDF page you want to place.

There are a number of other factors as well. Your machine specs for example, GPU support as well if you are using a Mac, available RAM and CPU power.

 

Could you provide a sample PDF file so I can test the case on my Windows 10 machine?

If the contents cannot be shared with the public send me a personal message. Click my user name here and click the blue button. Put the PDF on Dropbox or a similar service and send a download link.

 

Thanks,
Uwe Laubender

If you are using the Mac version, you can try the applescript version of this script and see if it performs any faster.
