Example – Split PDF document into front/back pages

Select a PDF file with the mouse and split it into two PDF files. The PDF file "test_vor.pdf" contains all odd pages (front pages 1,3,5,7,...) and "test_back.pdf" contains all even pages (back pages 2,4,6,8,... ).

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

    <eval variable="outVor" expression="filecutending({inFile})+'_vor.pdf'" />
    <eval variable="outRück" expression="filecutending({inFile})+'_rück.pdf'" />
    <iterate file="{inFile}" variable="inPdf">
        <template file="{inFile}" pagenr="{inPdf.pagenr}"/>
        <output condition="({inPdf.pagenr} mod 2)=1" file="{outVor}" />        
        <output condition="({inPdf.pagenr} mod 2)=0" file="{outRück}" />
