Multipage convert

Post by CedarTree » Fri Aug 30, 2019 2:32 pm

Hello - tried looking for a help file / manual but don't see one, so forgive the question...
What do the various multipage options do? There are two checkboxes...
>> Convert multipage to multipage (when possible)
>> Covert all pages from multipage

Not sure what the 2nd option does, compared to the first option (?)
Context is that I'm trying to convert multipage TIFFs to multipage PDFs, and I think the 1st checkbox is all I need (???)
Thanks! Awesome software!

I agree the two options seem slightly confusing, but from experience I think if you select the first option you should get the result you need...

Equally, I think selecting both options will probably work too.

the second option is when you convert multipage file to single file

To single files, plural... :D

When both options are selected I think, without checking, that Convert multipage to multipage (when possible) determines the result.

Edit:

Now both options are available, the following text might be clearer:

o Convert multipage file to single files

o Convert multipage file to multipage file (When possible)

And as they are mutually exclusive alternatives, shouldn't they really be 'radio buttons' or equivalent?
