    I get a bunch of invoices every week in pdf form and was wondering if there was a way to mass print them all without having to open them all individually. I did some searching via gooooogle and was able to find a script, but was wondering if there are other ways to do this via the osx. BTW I am running 10.6 if that makes any different.

    Thanks "MR Think-Tank"!

    Not sure if you want to do it a fancy way but all I did was take a group of PDF's (un-launched) and highlight them all and just did File-Print and they grouped together and began printing.

    When I do it with file-print from the os all it does is open them and not print them. I still have to go one by one and select print and close them. There's gotta be an easier way to do this.

    Thanks.

    When I use File -> Print from the Finder, it opens them, prints them, and closes them again. Do you have them set to open in Preview, or Adobe Reader?

    Have you tried to right-click and select print from the drop-down box?

    When I right-click a .pdf file in Finder, there is no Print option on the list.

    I don't know if this is still an option but it used to be years ago...(I never saw a need for this, so I didn't ever use it myself)

    Can one make a printer alias on the desktop and drag the files there?
