Print a multi-page PDF in a FMP12 container field

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to print a multi-page pdf stored in a container field by script (without human intervention)?

For single page PDFs, you can simply put an 8.5x11 container on an 8.5x11 layout, but I can't see a way to do multiple pages...

ScriptMaster, ICEpdf and javax printing.

You can tell it page size, page range, and which installed printer to use.

I came up with another option that doesn't require installing any plug-in or other software (for the Mac anyway):

Export field content to desktop.

Perform AppleScript [ "do shell script ("cd ~/Desktop && lpr -r " & $filename & "")" ]

What if you have the PDF inserted onto a layout using it's container field?
