Suffix and Page number leading zeros options - A page number is added to each PDF file name.   Suffix and Page number combine to be added to the end of the original filename.   For example, a suffix of:

 

-PageNumber

 

and a leading zeros of:

 

4

 

is used then for a 3 page PDF file called:

 

c:\SourceFolder\MyPDFFile.pdf

 

would become:

 

c:\OutputFolder\MyPDFFile-PageNumber0001.pdf

c:\OutputFolder\MyPDFFile-PageNumber0002.pdf

c:\OutputFolder\MyPDFFile-PageNumber0003.pdf

 

The leading zeros is the number of zeros that are added to the page number, so a leading zeros umber of 1 would give:

 

c:\OutputFolder\MyPDFFile-PageNumber1.pdf

c:\OutputFolder\MyPDFFile-PageNumber2.pdf

 

However, computers tend to list files alphabetically, so a 10 page PDF would give:

 

c:\OutputFolder\MyPDFFile-PageNumber1.pdf

c:\OutputFolder\MyPDFFile-PageNumber10.pdf

c:\OutputFolder\MyPDFFile-PageNumber2.pdf

c:\OutputFolder\MyPDFFile-PageNumber3.pdf

Etc.

 

The file MyPDFFile-PageNumber10.pdf is listed next to page 1 in the list above, which is not good.  So changing the leading zeros to 2 would be better:

 

c:\OutputFolder\MyPDFFile-PageNumber01.pdf

c:\OutputFolder\MyPDFFile-PageNumber02.pdf

c:\OutputFolder\MyPDFFile-PageNumber03.pdf

....

c:\OutputFolder\MyPDFFile-PageNumber10.pdf

 

as then when listed alphabetically, then all the page numbers are in order, and page 10 is then after page 9, rather than page 1.

 

 

Optional file output prefix - You can add a prefix to your resized images.  For example, a file called MyPDF.pdf could have the word 'New' prefixed to it which would output as NewMyPDF-Page001.pdf, NewMyPDF-Page002.pdf, etc.
