For macOS 10.12 and later only. These two AppleScripts each assist with adding PDF files to iTunes as PDF tracks. Each provides a method for easily supplying Artist, Album Artist, Album, Genre, Year, Rating, Loved and Comments 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. I describe here how I use it with Safari Reader view.
- 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 booklet" PDFs:
- Album lyrics/liner notes
- Music production notes
- 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.
Each script displays a panel like this one before adding the PDF to iTunes.
