Need help exporting multiple individual PDF files out of Indesign CC

I work for a monthly publication and we send our files to the press at the end of the month. There are around 190+ pages that need to be exported as individual PDF's and each PDF needs to be labled as their correct page number. Since we often are backed up against the wall at our deadline, we really need a way to export all these files at one time. Is there a way to export multiple PDF files at one time in Indesign CC?

You could script InDesign to export each page as individual PDF with specific export presets and labeled with correct page number.
But you could also use Acrobat Pro for this task (sorry for the certainly wrong translation of the Acrobat UI – I use a german version ...):
Export the whole publication as 1 PDF file (pp. 1-190).
Open it in Acrobat Pro and choose »Tools › Extract Pages«.
Type 1 to 190 and check the box »extract pages as single pages«, choose the location where to extract to and acrobat automatically numbers your new PDFs sequentially from 1 to x. (Caution: it doesn’t take the correct page number, but numbers sequentially, so it is important to have a PDF from pp. 1-190 in the correct order.)
So with this (as mentioned – sorry for German ):
You’ll get this:

  • Need help in linking a pdf file to my website, it stopped working

    I want to upload a pdf file to my web site form my documents and it stop working, its been working fine until Sunday July 28. The support team from my web site said its a firefox issue,because if I use internet explorer it works fine Please help me Thanks Liz

    When you have a problem with one particular site, a good "first thing to try" is clearing your Firefox cache and deleting your saved cookies for the site.
    (1) Bypass Firefox's Cache
    Use Ctrl+Shift+r to reload the upload page fresh from the server.
    Alternately, you also can clear Firefox's cache completely using:
    orange Firefox button (or Tools menu) > Options > Advanced
    On the Network mini-tab > Cached Web Content : "Clear Now"
    If you have a large hard drive, this might take a few minutes.
    (2) Remove the site's cookies (save any pending work first).
    While viewing a page on the site:
    * right-click and choose View Page Info > Security > "View Cookies"
    * Alt+t (open the classic Tools menu) > Page Info > Security > "View Cookies"
    In the dialog that opens, you can remove the site's cookies individually.
    Then try reloading the page and uploading again. Does that help?

  • Need HELP! Opening a PDF file from different URL

    I have a application that links to viewpdf.class. This class file will go to the FTP where the pdf file is located and open it. How do i do this using java? Here is what I have.. .i'm stuck
    URL url = new URL("ftp://user01:[email protected]/"+ folder_name +"README.pdf;type=i");
    URLConnection urlc = url.openConnection();
    InputStream is = urlc.getInputStream();thanks Tony
    here is how it looks like if it is on the local host.
    import java.util.*;
    import javax.servlet.*;
    import javax.servlet.http.*;
    public class viewpdf extends HttpServlet
        private ResourceBundle rb;
        public viewpdf()
            rb = ResourceBundle.getBundle("LocalStrings");
        public static void streamCopy(FileInputStream fileInputStream, ServletOutputStream servletOutputStream)
            throws IOException
            if(fileInputStream == null || servletOutputStream == null)
            byte abyte0[] = new byte[8192];
            int i;
                    while((i = != -1)
                        servletOutputStream.write(abyte0, 0, i);
        public void doGet(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res)
            throws ServletException, IOException
            ServletOutputStream servletOutputStream;
            String filename;
            String output;
            FileInputStream fileInputStream;
            servletOutputStream = res.getOutputStream();
            ServletContext servletcontext = getServletContext();
            filename = req.getParameter("file");
            String folder_code = req.getParameter("fold");
                filename = servletcontext.getRealPath(rb.getString("file_location")) + "/" + fold + "/" + file;
            fileInputStream = null;
            fileInputStream = new FileInputStream(file);
            streamCopy(fileInputStream, servletOutputStream);
            catch(FileNotFoundException e)
            filename = servletcontext.getRealPath(rb.getString("file_location")) + "/filenotfound.pdf";
            fileInputStream = null;
            fileInputStream = new FileInputStream(file);
            streamCopy(fileInputStream, servletOutputStream);

    That servlet already is Java. And the servlet code isn't what "opens" the PDF, it's the browser that sends the request that does that. I'm assuming that when you say "open it" you mean to start up an instance of Adobe Acrobat and ask it to display the document.

  • I need help with combining two pdf files together but it won't let me in the latest Acrobat DC?

    I had two ai files, 11 by 17 on separate pages, and made them into pdf's. When I combine the files, it will let one out of the two files go through. The funny thing is that it will let the larger file go through than the smaller file. The file that went through had been in  ai, dropped it into photoshop and put it back into ai again. The file that won't go through is a quote with different text. What should I do? What does pdf/a, pdf/x, pdf/e and preflight mean?
    Thank you

    Make sure neither of the PDF have been secured in some manner like password protection, form rights or forms distribution.
    Forms created with live cycle cannot be combined by Acrobat.

    How do I restore photos from Time Machine?  All of my photos have been imported within iPhoto and therefore are exported to Time Machine via an iPhoto file.  I can't figure out how to break individual photo files out of the iPhoto file.  Any ideas?

    You might post this query on the iPhoto forum and perhaps someone there can provide an answer.
    I tried this on my MBP and it seems that you have to restore the entire iPhoto Library.  What I did was put the current library in a separate folder on the desktop and then I restored the library from a prior date.  If you were to do that, you then could extract the desired photos and then delete the restored library.  Then place the current library back to the original location and import the desired photos.
    Not tidy but it seems it will work.

  • How do I create 1 pdf file out of multiple pdf's

    I have about 40 individual pdf files that I'd like to turn into 1 file with 40 pages.  How do I do it?
    Thank you, Joe

    Hi Captain Puget,
    You can use either Adobe PDF Pack of Acrobat to combine PDF files. With PDF Pack, you can combine 12 files at once, so you'd have to combine in batches. You wouldn't have that same limitation with Acrobat.
    Please see and for more information.

  • Can I use preview to export multiple page PDF as jpegs?

    Using Preview, I export multiple page PDF as jpeg and results are the first page only as jpeg. Can I use preview to export multiple page PDF as jpeg for every page?

    Automator is great for this if you need to export many pages to JPG, or just have to do this often.
    Two other quick and dirty way sto get it done:
    (1) Enable thumbnail view, click on the ONE PAGE you want to convert to jpg, then choose "export." If you choose more than one page, only the first will get exported to jpg.
    (2) Create a copy of the file, delete all the pages except the one you want to export to JPG, and export that page. You may be able to "undo" the delete, get all your pages back again, and re-delete all but the one you want to export, etc. I would not recommend doing this on the original version of the file because of Preview's autosave so-called "feature."
