Hello, we need to insert page numbers in several pdfs, of ~ 4000 pages each.
We create a form and setup a background pdf, add the metadata to show page x of x. in Desing is ok, with a pdf of 13 pages.
In the workflow: Create Metadata -> Create PDF.

This takes too long, is there any configuration that I am doing wrong or am I missing something else?

Regards.

From what you have described, you are doing it in the correct way. If the PDFs have ca. 4000 pages as you say, the Metadata routine can take a while.

Are you running this on a server or a desktop PC?

thanks jim 3108, i am developing on my desktop PC, i7 6700hq 16gb ram, with the nfr license.
The CREATE PDF action is the one that takes a long time, the cpu usage is ~ 30%
Eg for a PDF of 400 pages, it takes 8 min to insert page x of x. it's a long time.

This could be done a lot faster using the stamping method.
