Resourcefulness + impatience = multi-page PDF script
We were recently hired to update the page numbers to a 300-page document. No biggie, right?! We didn’t have access to original files so a relatively quick update it was NOT.
So, we brainstormed the most efficient way to do this and thinking that there must be a quicker way than manually placing the pages and using a master style in InDesign, we turned to Google.
It turns out there’s a script for InDesign to do this exact thing! (Follow the steps outlined in this post and download the script from Github.) The script placed the individual pages of the PDF into InDesign in about three minutes. From there I added the page number placeholder to a master page in InDesign and voilà.
The client was thrilled and so was I.
