060-030 MetaServer Separate / Organize – Apply Separation & Page Processing

After a Separate Document / Process Page action or Organize action, your “separated” document is treated as a single PDF with bookmarks based on the separation points.

If you import emails, using the Import Email action, and you import the email body together with the attachments, the generated PDF will be bookmarked as such.

You can view your bookmarks / separation points during Validation or in the Organizer. In the Organizer, you can also adjust your bookmarks / separation points.

If you want to split your document in separate PDFs, your document needs to first go through the Apply Separation & Page Processing action.

If you only want to apply the adjustments made to your pages (e.g. rotating, deleting, rearranging pages, etc.) and NOT separate your documents, the document needs to go through an Apply Page Processing action instead.

In other words, with the Apply Separation & Page Processing action, your document will be split in individual PDFs based on separation points that were specified in the previous actions. It will also apply any adjustments you’ve made during Organize or the Separate Document / Process Page action (e.g. move, delete, rotate pages).

By default, an Apply Separation & Page Processing action is automatically added after your Separate Document / Process Page action or Organize action.

To add an Apply Separation & Page Processing action manually, select the action after which you want to insert the Apply Separation & Page Processing action and press Add -> Apply Separation & Page Processing. The Setup window will automatically open.

The Apply Separation & Page Processing action does not require any setup. If you open the action, you can add a description.

You can also open an existing Apply Separation & Page Processing action by double clicking the action or by pressing the setup button on the right side of the action or in the ribbon, as shown below.

In the above workflow, the document will be split after the Separate Document / Process Page action and the Organize action.
