Input from filelist - Option to set output filename to source filename

Post by cday »

Code: Select all

nconvert -out pdf -multi -o Output\%%.pdf -l Filelist.txt
When the above code is run the the output PDF has the name of the first image in the filelist.

Could an option please be added to set the output filename to the input text file filename.

Example filelist:

Code: Select all

Image_1.tif
Image_2.tif
Image_3.tif
Output filename of the file created is Image_1.pdf.
