New Process Plan step "Add files" (12.0)

pdfToolbox 12 introduced a new Process plan step 'Add files' which, as the name suggests, allows you to add additional pages to a PDF file in the Process Plan workflow.

Until pdfToolbox 11, it wasn't possible to merge 2 files within a Process Plan workflow. This new step 'Add files' lets you do exactly that.

The Process Plan itself is configured using a script:

  • After drag&dropping the step onto the canvas, click on the step
  • Click the '+' button in the right side panel to start working on the configuration script

The sample script looks like below:

Example script: Add a cover page

Below is a sample script to add a cover page (1 pager) to the front of a PDF file:

const conf = {
    prepend: [], //array of files to prepend to current doc
    append: [] , //array of files to append to current doc
    embed: []    //array of files to embed into current doc
};

const CoverPath = '/Users/admin/Downloads/callas_cover_Part1.pdf';

conf.prepend.push({
	path: CoverPath,
	first_page:0,
	num_pages:1
});

conf;
