Convert entire folder into an archive PDF

pdfaPilot lets you convert folders containing multiple PDF files (or other file formats) into an archive PDF using a simple drag-and-drop process.
 This archive PDF will then contain (depending on the selected conversion type) the files from the folder, including all sub-folders.

Select folder containing PDF files

Select the folder containing the desired files and drag it into the pdfaPilot window.

Select processing options

A dialog box will open.

A message will appear at the top of the window: A folder has been dropped on callas pdfaPilot. Please choose one of the following options:

  1. Create a dossier: In this case, instead of converting files, they will all be embedded in their original format. The resulting PDF will be a PDF/A-3 file.
  2. Create an archive, PDF/A-2: Files (and file formats) will be converted if possible. Files which cannot be converted will be excluded. The resulting PDF will be a PDF/A-2 file.
  3. Create an archive, PDF/A-3: Files will be converted if possible. Files which cannot be converted will be embedded in their original format. The resulting PDF will be a PDF/A-3 file.
  4. Create archive, PDF/A-3, plus source file: Files will be converted to PDF/A-3. Files which cannot be converted will be embedded. The resulting PDF will be a PDF/A-3 file. Files which can be converted to PDF from other formats will be embedded in addition to the original file.
  5. Cancel: Cancel and close the window.

pdfaPilot begins processing. A progress bar reports on the process.

Result

  1. A cover page will show the user a summary of embedded files.
  2. The Embedded files will also be shown in a list on the left.
  3. At the bottom of the Document window, you will also see the name of the PDF standard used.
  4. The newly created PDF file will be named after the folder that was processed. It will be stored one level up from the processed folder.
