The Batch Stamp process can be run against any number of PDFs, a single, multi-paged PDF, or a Set.
PDFs do not need to be open in Revu when the batch process is run. If a document is open in Revu, any changes resulting from the batch process will be made to the document, but the document will not be saved or checked in (if relevant); the user will need to save and check in the document manually. If a document is not open in Revu, and it is not checked out/locked by another user, changes will be applied and saved to the document automatically (without opening the document in Revu).
To run a batch apply stamp process:
Go to File > Batch > Apply Stamp. The Batch: Apply Stamp dialog box appears.
- If no documents or Sets are open in Revu, the standard Windows Open dialog box appears instead, as if the Add button were clicked in the next step. Use it to select the PDFs to include in the batch process and skip the next step.
Add PDFs to be processed using one or more of the following methods:
- To add all PDFs that are currently open in Revu, click Add Open Files.
- To select files from a local or network drive, click Add.
- To add all PDFs in the Set that is currently open in Revu, click Add Open Set.
- By default, any document in the File List will be stamped. To remove a document from the File List, select it and click Delete.
To apply a Stamp to specific pages of a PDF, select it, then click the Pages menu and choose from the following:
- All Pages: Sets the range to all pages.
- Custom: Sets the range to a custom value. When this option is selected the list becomes a text box. To enter a custom range:
- Use a dash between page numbers to define those two pages and all pages in between.
- Use a comma to define pages that are separated.
For example: 1-3, 5, 9 will include pages 1, 2, 3, 5 and 9.
- From the Apply To menus, select among Even Pages Only, Odd Pages Only or Odd and Even Pages and among Landscape Pages, Portrait Pages or Landscape and Portrait Pages. These selections work in conjunction to form the filter, so any pages to be processed must meet both criteria selected.
Click OK. The Apply Stamp dialog box appears.
- Select the stamp to apply from the Stamp Selection list. A preview of the selected stamp is shown in the viewport to the right and file data is populated below. By default, the last stamp applied using this process is pre-selected.
- Click Browse to select a different source folder.
- Set any or all of the following options, as desired:
- Blend Mode: Defines the method by which the color in the stamp blends with the underlying PDF content.
- Opacity: Sets the transparency of the stamp.
- Rotation: Rotates the stamp clockwise by the number of degrees indicated. Use the arrows to the right to increment by 15 degrees or manually enter a rotation value.
- Scale: Determines the size of stamp, as a percentage of the stamp's default size. Use the arrows to the right to increment by 10 percent or manually enter a scale.
- Set the Stamp Position:
- Anchor: Set an anchor point by clicking one of the boxes in the grid.
- X and Y: Enter displacement values as appropriate. This will place the stamp that distance from the anchor point along the X and/or Y axis.
- To include more documents in this Batch Stamp process, click Add Files. The Batch: Apply Stamp dialog box reappears. Add the desired files and click OK.
- There is an opportunity to edit the selected stamp from this screen, but be aware that doing so will cancel the Batch Stamp process and all current settings will be lost. To edit the selected stamp, click Edit Stamp. The Batch Stamp process is canceled and the stamp is opened in Revu.
- Click OK. The stamp is placed in the selected documents.
