Hello

I would like to see an export pdf option to seperate pdfs for each page.
I know there are free tools for it to split the pdf afterwards, but I think it would be nice in one step.

What do you think?

I agree with ivbera. And such a facility would ideally need to have an extra field in the PDF export window for user to select a naming convention for the subsequently created single PDF files. I suggest something like:

Export file names:    [file name] [embedded page no.] [export sequence no.]

I'm curious why that option would be useful. I've never had the need to create individual page PDFs. When would you use it?

Just a requirement for delivery of files for some clients, competitions and file-storage in a database.
So maybe it is a special case, which I still like to see.

1.  I have a printer who requires separate page files

2.   Email circulation of specific pages to subscribers (without the need to send the whole set)

3.   Ease and efficiency of filing and retrieving discrete pages

fde101....selecting page groups for export is already supported and works well, but the output is to the usual, single file. Thus, in the export window, select:

Area:    All pages

Pages:   2,6,19  

Selected pages don't have to be consecutive. Separate page nos. with commas. For a run of consecutive pages use hyphen, eg 25-28. The two forms can be mixed, eg  1-4,9   but the output is always to a single compiled file.

Yes, I was referring to generating separate PDF files for each section (as defined in Section Manager), in one export operation.  So you could choose to output one PDF with all sections and pages, one PDF per section, one PDF per spread, or one PDF per page, for example.
