How do I automatically run a post-processing utility on the PDF file?

Post by chrispitude » Tue Dec 03, 2019 6:31 am

I have a post-processing utility that we run on our published PDF files. However, it's cumbersome for our writers to run it manually each time they publish a PDF with PDF Chemistry.

Is there a way to run an external utility automatically as a part of the PDF Chemistry transformation? I don't see an entry for a post-processing command line in the transformation setup, but perhaps there is an Ant parameter or some kind of extension point I can use. The utility simply takes the filename of the PDF file as its only argument, and it modifies the file in-place.

Thanks!
