Creating subfolders by filename

Postby DerekLee1 » Sat Jul 06, 2013 12:45 am

I'm wanting to create foldered single-page tiff images using Bullzip and mass printing. Say that I have 10 pdf files, named 1.pdf, 2.pdf, 3.pdf.....10.pdf. I would like to print to tiff with Bullzip so that it creates 10 folders based on the filenames, then numbered by pages within the folder. So I would end up with:
1\1.tif, 2.tif, 3.tif...
2\1.tif, 2.tif
3\1.tif, 2.tif, 3.tif, 4.tif, 5.tif

and so on. Is this possible in the settings somehow? I've tried using things like "\Tiffs\<smarttitle>\<pageno,4>.tif", but it won't create the folders (it's instead trying to create a new folder called "<smarttitle>" to drop all the outputs into). Any help is much appreciated!

I think you can do what you want :-)

Instead of the <smarttitle> in you folder name you can use a counter as in <counter>. If you want the sequence to start from 1 again you need to reset the counter by deleting the counter file or specifying a new and unused counter file.
