Some of the articles on the Colecandoo site feature PDF downloads that can be found at the bottom of the respective articles. These PDFs contain the necessary files required as attachments within the PDFs to attempt what was explained in the articles.

On the other hand, this page features some free useful javascripts, as well as show notes from presentations that I have given.

If you’ve found that any of the javascripts here have been beneficial and made you more productive, then I’d like you to consider visiting the Donate page.

    I create 4 pages with diferente sizes (1 10×15 other 15×23 and other a4) in a document.
    I export that files to a folder in jpg. I have a software that separate the files based on sizes( that returns me each size into a folder) . Then I use a rename software to rename the files based on my datasheet in each folder

    Since your script works only with pdf/idml ….I can’t use that.
