Script of the Day: PDF Adder

PDF Adder is a collection of two scripts that each assist with adding PDF files to iTunes as "digital booklet" PDF tracks. Each provides a method for easily supplying Author (artist), Album, Category (genre), Year, Rating and Description tag data which is then applied to the newly-added PDF track entry:

  • Add as PDF to iTunes is a PDF Service workflow that, when installed, will be available in the PDF pop-up menu of the Print Dialog. It allows you to save the current document as a PDF file (from any application that uses the Print Dialog) and add it to iTunes.
  • PDF Adder is an applet/droplet that will let you choose or drag-and-drop an existing PDF file and add it to iTunes. It can be installed in iTunes' Scripts folder for easy access from iTunes Script menu.

Here are some suggestions for your own "digital booklets":

  • Album lyrics/liner notes
  • Music production notes
  • Manuals
  • Receipts/order confirmations
  • DJ set lists
  • Podcast addenda
  • Audiobook chapter synopses
  • Lecture notes
  • Sound effects indexes

Anything you can print, you can make into a PDF...and any PDF can be added to iTunes.

Optionally, it can delete the selected source Playlist Folder and its contents (of course, the tracks remain in your library, but any playlists and sub-Playlist Folders it contains can be deleted).
