Topic: Combining PDFs for duplex printing
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 166096

I am looking for a solution to combining multiple PDFs to create a single PDF. This combined PDF will be printed as a single document on a duplex printer. The tricky part is each combined document must start on an odd page in the combined PDF so that each combined document could be separated from the print output as a complete separate document. I have no control over the PDF creation process so I need to control this at the merge level or by editing the final document. The last requirement is that this must be done as part of a print submission which means that is must be done without human intervention many times a day in reasonably quick fashion. Ghostscript work great for the merge but I don't think there is a way to tell it to add the required blank pages when merging.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
