Insert PDF after page with certain text

Post by popniete » Thu Apr 19, 2018 11:29 am

Hi all,
in my document, i'd like to insert an external PDF after every page containing a certain text string. My action works as far as to find the string and select the corresponding pages.
It's the part of inserting the PDF after the selected pages that troubles me. In the "Add pages" Action, I don't find any way to the effect of inserting a page after every selected page.

Thanks for any hints,
Tobi

The Action doesn't allow inserting based on a selected page, although it would be a nice addition.
Will talk to the team.

I think there might be a workaround though.
Is it the same page that needs to be inserted in a document?

Hi,
in this case, it would always be the same PDF/Page.

I just had another look and it's not possible currently.
Even inserting a blank page can't be defined by a selection.
I was thinking I could do something clever with copy/paste, but it's not going to work.
I've written it up as a feature request and we'll see if we can do it for the next version. I don't think it's a lot of work.
