If you'd like to download multiple files to PDF you will need to follow a slightly modified procedure from the regular download creation (click here for more information on downloads).

Before preparing your download, please ensure the document has an image. You can always use the 'Not Rendered' QC tags to spot any documents without an image.

Note: If you are trying to print a native file from a Database Upload it may only have a slipsheet as the image.

Step 1: Save a search with the documents you want to bulk download to PDF

Like with any download, a saved search is required prior to proceeding (1). You may not have a Download Template yet, that's okay! You can leave this as is for now (2).

If you'd like to have your PDF documents sorted in a particular way you can also select that here (3). Lastly, you will have the option of including any family members (4) or culled family members (5).

Step 2: Loadfile Settings

Since you are creating a download made up of PDFs you can skip the loadfile step and select "No, don't include loadfiles in download".

Step 3: Image Settings

Under the images section of Step 3 you will want to make sure you include PDFs, multipage, color as the Image setting.

If you are only printing PDFs, you can exclude Native Files and Text Files from your download.

Additionally, if you have redactions, confidentiality designations, or Bates branding you'd like included, you can add those here. (If you'd like more information on these options refer to Step 3 here).

Step 4: Volume Information

As part of our best practices we recommend naming your Download Volume (2) with a simple yet informative name and populating the Download Notes with appropriate information (3).

If you elected to not include Bates branding in Step 3 your PDFs will not be branded, however Logikcull still requires you to provide a starting Bates or Control prefix so that you can easily identify these files if you'd like to print them off at a later date (2).

If you'd like more information on steps 4 through 5 in the picture below, please refer to Step 4 of our FAQ on Creating a Download (here).

All that's left now is hit "Create Download" to receive your PDFs!

IMPORTANT

We place the resulting images in separate folders to avoid filename collision, where files with the same name can overwrite each other.

However, if you wanted to copy the items to a single folder, assuming you used PDF as the image format you can follow these instructions below.

For Windows

  1. Unzip/extract the zip file
  2. Browse to the IMAGES folder
  3. Use the Windows explorer search tool (per attached screenshot), enter pdf or asterisk (*), and this should provide a listing of all the pdf files within the image folder. You can then select to copy them all to a new folder.

Keep in mind, if using Windows 10 as your operating system, we also suggest use the following syntax, if the suggested method above fails to display the results you're looking for:
‚Äč
ext:<extension name> (i.e. ext:.pdf)

For Mac

  1. Unzip/extract the zip file
  2. Browse to the IMAGES folder
  3. Use the Apple search bar (per attached screenshot), enter pdf and click the name of the folder from which you want to extract files. This should provide a listing of all the pdf files within the image folder. You can then select to copy them all to a new folder.
