    Default Single PDF's

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I usually start the solving of every problem with searching this forum - it usually works, but this time I think I'm on an opposite to every one else

    I've started using SSM for my plotting (really great) but today I was going to plot about 20 drawings to PDF to send to a customer. Now the thing is, when I choose Publish, it plots all the 20 drawings to one single PDF-file with 20 pages.. Now that is usually great (I wish I knew that before...) but not this time. We have to be able to track every drawing in our archive so they all have to be saved as individual PDF's with one page in each.

    So the Question: Is it possible to use SSM and/or Publish to plot 20 single PDF'files in one go?
    whether is when you are asking yourself, should I stay or should I go

    I never used SSM but in Acrobat you can extract pages from a multi page PDF document.
    Or a free solution: PDF995. I used it with good results before I had Acrobat. Follow this link: http://www.pdfedit995.com/ and scroll down to the feature #23. Is it what you are after?

    Yeah, that is essentially what I'm after.

    Although if the only way to get my drawings for one combined PDF to individual PDFs is to put it through PDF995 and then extract them one by one - tehn it's easier to plot them one by one from CAD directly...

    If I remember correctly PDF995 allows you to extract the pages from one move!

    Oh...hmm...maybe I'll stay another hour tonight when there's no distraction, i.e. all co-workers have left for the conference (the CEO wants us to be more 'involved' in the company...), and try it out

    Just for the record: PDF995 can't extract several pages from one PDF-file to individual, seperate files..at least not that I can find.. but it looks like a really nifty program for all of us who aren't lucky enough to have Acrobat - it does all kind of stuff with pdfs!!

    Sorry TigerRedhead! Last time I worked with Pdf995 was years ago.
    I agree with you; it is a relly nice program.
