Padding a document with a PDF while ensuring the back cover is a blank page

Received the following question via email:

We need to pad the documents with intentional blank pages but we need the last page or the outside back cover to be a true blank. The number of pages in each document will vary.

Re: Padding a document with a PDF while ensuring the back cover is a blank page

The following workflow should be able to pad the document as described:

The route component will determine if the document is a multiple of 4 pages

Documents that already are a multiple of 4 pages are sent to the printer (or to some other operation such as imposition) without modification.

 

Other documents (with a number of pages which is not a multiple of 4) are then padded with a PDF file so the number of pages is a multiple of 4

The last page of the document (aka page -1) is then removed.

Lastly, a blank page is added to the end of the document.

The blank page size is based on the size of the last page of the document. This will allow the workflow to work with documents of any size
