How It Works?
AssistMyTeam PDF Attachment Extractor app makes it very easy to extract and save attachments from your PDF documents in a click. There are two ways of attachments extraction – Batch mode and Single mode.
Batch Mode: Extract Attachments from PDF documents in bulk
To add PDF files in the list for attachments extraction, click ‘Add files’ or ‘Add folder’. Notice that PDF files that contain attachments are differentiated by the presence of the attachment in the icon. The ‘Attachments‘ column (second column) also shows the number of attachments each PDF file has.
Once you have built up a list of PDF files and ready, click ‘Extract Attachments…‘ button from the toolbar.
This will allow you to configure the extraction options and filters to be applied to the PDF files. For instance, you can choose to extract all attachments from the PDF document, or extract only those with particular file formats, or extract matching a part of the attachment name.
You can also customize the output folder where the attachments will be extracted to, such as to the same location as the PDF document, or in a subfolder, or a custom folder.
Additionally, the user can also choose the naming scheme of the attachments that will be extracted. That is, to use the original attachment name, or to prefix the attachment name with that of the PDF document. The benefit of the latter option being easy clarity in relating the extracted attachment to its parent PDF document.
Lastly, if files with the same name as that of the attachments already existed in the specified folder location, you can define your own overwrite policy. For instance, you can choose to cancel the extraction, or overwrite the existing files, or output the attachments by suffixing with an iterative number so as to keep both the existing files and the attachments in the same folder.
Single Mode: Extract Attachments from a PDF document
To extract attachments from a PDF document of interest, select the PDF file from the list and click ‘View Attachments…‘. Alternatively, you can also right-click it and click ‘View Attachments…’ from the context menu.
This will show all the attachments contained within the selected PDF document in a pop-up dialog box.
To extract a single attachment or multiple attachments, select it from the list and click ‘Extract‘ button. To extract all attachments, click ‘Extract All‘ button. This will prompt you to choose the destination folder where the attachments will be extracted to.
