Hi All. I opened a new 1x48.5" document and want to insert 1x2" PDF files at set inetrvals. These intervals I have in a CSV or Excel table. Is there any way to Place them at said intervals from such a file? Or even a way to enter the values once so they all get Placed at said intervals?

 

Many thanks!

Are the intervals all uniform or varied?

Hi afbendana,

this is a workflow that can be fully automated by using ExtendScript (JavaScript). For that hire a scripter.

( You could contact me with a private message through the forum. )

 

Without a script:

You could prepare object styles where you define the position of an element.

Place the PDF pages, apply the object styles. One object style per set of coordinates.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
