Batch convert Pages documents to PDF

Pages (part of iWork) has the brilliant ability to convert your document to PDF, a file format which will work on pretty much any computer and mobile device. It has the added benefit of generally being a smaller file and is locked so that changes cannot be made by the person you’re sending it to.

To convert a single file to PDF, all you have to do it open a document in Pages and from the menubar click Share> Export> PDF.

This week I needed to convert many of my pages documents to PDF. Converting them one-by-one would have taken all night. I have therefore created a simple little App to do all the hard work for me. If you’ll find it useful, feel free to download it too.

Download Pages 2 PDF
How to use Pages2PDF

  1. Download and Unzip the package. The Zip file contains a single App called ‘Pages 2 PDF’
  2. At this stage I recommend dragging the App to your Applications folder on your Mac
  3. Double click to launch the App. A popup windows will ask you to browse for the documents you wish to convert. (Sometimes it might be behind another App if you have something else already open and running on your Mac)
  4. All your documents need to be in the same folder/directory. Browse to their location and use CMD or SHIFT to select more than 1 document.
  5. Click Choose and your documents will be converted and displayed on screen. Warning: If you have selected any other files apart from Pages documents, the conversion will fail.

Important notes:
You must have Pages ’09 installed on your Mac. Also, make sure you only attempt to convert Pages documents; choosing other files such as images or Word documents may cause the App to crash.

We asked for Luke to come in for a training day with our staff since we were taking over the running of a Mac office and all had very little experience of using them. We found the half a day of training exceptionally useful. We were taught basic things, however we could already see that they would greatly increase our productivity and understanding of how to get the best out of using the Mac computers. The session was the best of both worlds of being taught the basics that we were lacking but without going too basic and wasting time. Will definitely be getting Luke back in again soon!

Thank you Luke for sorting out all my Apple issues! Luke was able to set up my multiple computers, phones and iPads with home and business email and calendar accounts. I have used his services multiple times and he always knows what to do, from printers, wifi and fix any issues whenever my Mac breaks or I need help with Office apps. Highly recommended.
