is it possible...

Post by flytecheckman » Fri Nov 03, 2017 7:26 pm

I wonder is there a way to generate a report or extract trim box dimensions from multiple pdf files at one time? I have been asked to create a list that contains the trim box dimensions and the file name. I understand that the trim box sizes are included in the preflight report but need to extract only this information. There are thousands of pdf files that need to be reported in the list so it would need to be a fairly robust process.

For example:

File Name: xxxxx1234.pdf Trim Box Size: 11x8

Thanks In advance

Only way I could see to do this would be to output an XML for each page and then build an overall report from them using another tool or maybe Switch if you have it.
Also worth noting that the original documents might not all be the same size, so you might need multiple values for documents
