Re: Converting Multipage TIFF to PDF

I thought may be the problem was my computer. Tried on couple of different ones, tried on Windows virtual PC in XP mode- the result was always the same- just the first page in output file.

I'm attaching output file.

You are correct -- your output file is indeed single-page!

As I said, the command line is very unforgiving of even the slightest error, but there must be a simple explanation...

You have copied and pasted my code directly, have you?

Edit: Can you delete the duplicate post above, or maybe a moderator can?

Sorry for the duplicated post. I can't delete it myself.

I tried your command exactly as you typed (used clipboard for that). See it for yourself (nconvert was unpacked into D:\xNconvert\XnView> folder):

D:\xNconvert\XnView>nconvert -xall -dpi 200 -multi -out tiff -c 8 -o 2paged_exmpl.tif 2paged_exmpl.pdf

Tried -multi and -xall in different places but again- output TIFF is singlepaged although input PDF is two-page:

nconvert -o $\%.tif -out tiff -multi -xall ak_multi.pdf

In resulting TIFF file there's only the first page of corresponding PDF file.
Please send me your pdf?
I attach my PDF and my resulting TIF.

There's what gets me not exactly what I need:

My problem is solved thanks to cday:

I haven't had installed GS before on my Windows.

I installed the last version of it and everything got ok.

Thank you Pierre, nconvert is an excelent tool with outstanding performance.
