I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this - but you all seem so intelligent that I'm hoping you can help anyway.
My current workflow uses Quark6 importing data streams (using xTags) from which I can then create (on a Mac G5 - OS-X) a .pdf containing 'n' pages. Each page of the resultant .pdf contains a unique number in the same position.
Using a small PC based .net application I can then split the pdf, the application picks up the unique number and names each pdf with that name - perfect for what I want....except....
I often have to create a .pdf with in excess of 2000 pages which Quark can't handle so the process has been migrated to InDesign which handles the quantity of pages admirably but when the pdf is created the unique number no longer appears as 'text' (with each character appearing in the pdf as a single entity) it appears as a 'string' of characters - therefore not searchable!!
Does anyone know of a way that I can create a pdf from InDesign in exactly the same way as Quark handles the creation?
Incidentally, I have tried using the Jaws pdf creator as a print driver from with InDesign and that, sadly, hasn't worked.
Thanks for your time
