Batch Operation

Acrobat -- Batch Rename PDF Files Based on Content or Metadata

Batch rename pdf files based on their content and meta data.

Using this script you can batch rename (if you have Acrobat Pro, of course) a bunch of PDF files based on their content or metadata.

The version of this tool that uses metadata can be purchased using this link: Buy Now

You can use the following parameters in it:

  • Original file name
  • Title
  • Author
  • Subject
  • Keywords
  • Number of pages

When you run the batch process for the first time, you will need to enter the pattern to use for the new file name. It looks like this:

Then you run the batch process (or Action, as it's called in Acrobat X) on your files, and they will all be automatically re-saved using the pattern you specified.
A menu item allows you to reset the pattern, in case you want to use a different one.

How it works

  • Create a pattern for file names
  • Allow the script to run
  • Batch rename files

I've been working with Gilad for almost 7 years on an evolving project that relies on lengthy complicated scripts. The turnaround times, pricing and accuracy are excellent. His depth of knowledge has been extremely helpful in helping define issues and offering options to accomplish the tasks. The add on scripts have been essential to maintaining and updating our existing documents as well. I highly recommend his services and products.

We first started working with Gilad back in 2015. I found him online in looking through different forum sites and realized he is an expert in Adobe and creating java scripts. I started with a small project and quickly realized he was an asset to have as a resource! Gilad has completed over 50 different projects for me. Each project has been completed on-time and he has been extremely easy to communicate with and his coding has always been accurate! I highly recommend Gilad and his team!

Gilad exceeded my expectations with nine different projects in which I sought his developer expertise.  He looks at your concept and suggests ways to make it more efficient.   Gilad sees additions or modifications you never considered and which ultimately prove invaluable.  If your concept has shortcomings, Gilad takes the time to explain them and then work with you to correct or replace them.  I wholeheartedly and unequivocally endorse Gilad as an expert developer.
