The Bluebeam Stapler can also be used to configure a set of conversions, each conversion being referred to as a “job”. Multiple jobs can be added to the Stapler and converted at once. Use this capability to convert many files in an automated manner.

The output file is displayed in the first row, indicating the filename which will be created, the output location and creation date. Before the PDF filename is an icon which can be used to expand and collapse the list of source files included. The order of the files in the job is important, as this is order the pages will appear in the resulting PDF.

Select one or more source files in the list and click the up, down and sort buttons to reorder source documents within each job, or click and drag them to a new order. Delete one or more source documents from a job by click the delete button. Add additional files to convert by dragging from a Windows Explorer folder into the Stapler.

Where the source file is dragged will determine if a new conversion job will get created or if the source file will get appended to a PDF job. If a file is dragged onto an existing job, the Stapler will attempt to insert the file in that location. When a new job is created, the Stapler window will display a second job. 

1. Drag your file over an existing job to add it to the PDF.  2. Drag a file to the blank area below your jobs to create a new PDF job.

The Stapler job window sorts alphabetically by job name, so the order of the jobs displayed may change. To reverse the order of the sorting, click the “Filename” bar.

To change the parameters for a job, select the job name and then click the Configure button. The Configure Job dialog appears which you can use to control the creation of that output file.
