Page List

The Page List is the principal work area: it lists the master pages in your document. These pages usually find their source in an imported PDF document, but they may be pages added by PDFClerk Pro as originally blank pages, or as pages with imported text or graphical content (e.g. by importing text based documents or pictures directly into PDFClerk Pro).

You can drag any documents from the Finder directly onto the Page List. You can even drag folders and PDFClerk Pro will import any folder contents that it understands into the document. You can also drag and drop selected rows within the list to rearrange pages. Dragging selected pages from the list to the Finder exports a PDF containing only those pages.

You can tab, shift-tab, return and shift-return to navigate and edit the rows and columns in the list. To select a range contiguous of pages: select the top or bottom target page, then shift click to select the page at the other extremity. Or use the up/down arrows while holding down the shift-key to mark a selection.

To select pages at random: hold down the command-key while clicking a page to select it. Command clicking a selected page will deselect it.

The page list has a power packed contextual menu that allows more operations on pages. It is accessed by control clicking anywhere within the list area, or by clicking with whatever button on a multi-button mouse is set up to produce a right-click.

The contextual menu provides the following options:

Add Blank page

Adds a blank page to the end of the document.

Insert Blank Page

Inserts a blank page before the top most selected page.

Remove Selected Pages

Removes all pages in the current selection.

Relabel selected pages

Brings up the relabel pages dialog, that allows renumbering and relabeling the page labels. The prefix and suffix fields support the special variables $title, $author, $subject, $sourceName, $currentPageNumber and $totalPages, which are dynamically replaced by their respective values in the document, both when displayed in the page list, and when rendered on the pages.

Rename Source of Selected Pages

Allows renaming the Source property of the selected pages in one fell swoop.

Reverse selected pages

Reverses the order of the selected pages. Pages do not have to form a contiguous selection. Unselected pages that lie within the range of selected pages will not be touched by the sort.

Select Alternating Pages

Invert Selection

Inverts the current selection. Previously unselected pages will be selected and previously selected pages will be removed from the selection.

The Select Alternating Pages and Invert Selection commands, when used together with the remove, relabel, rename and reverse commands provide very powerful and flexible page level editing options.
