Print to separate pdf with name of page

Got an idea to improve LayOut?

Print to separate pdf with name of page

Postby pbacot » Wed Jun 28, 2017 9:37 pm

I need to have pdf files for each page from LayOut, and I need consistent naming. The way L.O. prints pdf all to one file could be helpful in some contexts but for me right now it creates a lot of extra work. I wish L.O. would print each page separately to a folder when I go to print all, and name the pdf with the LayOut file name and the respective page name.

This has been a feature request of mine for a few releases. It could be manipulated in settings by a simple tick box.

1. Export to PDF [1 file]
2. Print to PDF each page [Name of file-name of page]

Revisions are going to be a little trickier but this would certainly be a huge step forward.

"Pdf to separate pages" integrated in Layout would be the best option.
Meanwhile I use PDFSAM (Windows) to split PDF files. PDFSAM Basic is freeware; http://www.pdfsam.org/pdfsam-basic/
File-names are very easy to manage: http://www.pdfsam.org/customize-file-names/
Also available for Mac and Linux.
