Request for script - Guillotine + Watermark
Hi everyone,

I perform a very repetitive task which I would like to automate.

I have a lot of PDF files, that I need to cut in pieces, watermark (based on name of source file) and then save them back as PDF. For example

This is the source file called Sample.PDF (attached)

.pdf  sample.pdf (Size: 255.98 KB / Downloads: 208)
I insert 2 horizontal guides to divide the file in three areas (the guides are always horizontal). They location of the guides varies from file to file. The number of horizontal guides can vary from file to file.

Then I use the Guillotine tool to split the file in 3 files. Each of these files have to be watermarked at the bottom-nidele as Sample_00, Sample_01, Sample_02 and saved as Sample_00.pdf, Sample_01.pdf and Sample_02.pdf respectively. The output is as follows. (attached)

.pdf  sample_00.pdf (Size: 200.14 KB / Downloads: 66)

.pdf  sample_01.pdf (Size: 48.52 KB / Downloads: 61)

.pdf  sample_02.pdf (Size: 48.64 KB / Downloads: 86)

I have been trying to automate the following steps
1. Run Guillotine
2. Add watermark (format Sample_nn) near the middle bottom of the page.
3. Save files as Sample_nn.pdf in the same directory as the source file.

I am afraid I don't enough Scricpt-Fu to be able to do it.

Could any one of you assist please? Much appreciate your help !
