Single PDF pages export - Adobe Indesign Windows

I've got a 270 page doent that needs to be exported into single pdf files (ie. 1 page per file = 270 pdfs) and wanting to know if there is any sort of a script or "action" in Indesign CS that can help. Similar to single eps exports, only pdfs. Cheers...

    Check the Adobe Studio Exchange.

    If the script on Exchange doesn't work for you, ARTS makes a series of
    splitter/combiner plugins for Acrobat. While they are overkill for simply
    splitting files, they work very well indeed.

    I managed to find a little program called pro pdf manager and the trial version is pretty good - US$60 for a the full software, I can't believe that there isn't some sort of feature in either Indesign or acrobat pro for that matter.

    It's really not something that most people need to do. The nice thing
    about these programs is the ability to either script them or buy third
    party plugins for something that programmers didn't have time for or
    didn't think of.

    I have a script that does this.

    The Acrobat 5 CD carries a script for splitting a PDF into individual pages.
    There is a wrinkle in that while it numbers the files consecutively, it
    starts from 0 so all your pages are one back. I modified it and here it is
    (there is probably some redundant code in it, but it works anyway). Save it
    as a .js file as something like splitpdf.js in Acrobat>Javascripts>User.
    Run it from Acrobat (without the file being opened) from File>Batch
    Processing. It should appear on the drop down menu. You end up with
    myfile.pdf plus myfile_Page1.pdf etc in the same folder.



    /* Extract Pages to Folder */
    // regular expression acquire the base name of file
    var re = /.*\/|\.pdf$/ig;
    // filename is the base name of the file Acrobat is working on
    var filename = this.path.replace(re,"");
    try {
    for (var i = 0; i < this.numPages; i++)
    this.extractPages(
    {
    nStart: i,
    });
    } catch (e) {
    console.println("Aborted: "+e)
    }

    Try Doent - Extract Pages.
    Will create a new PDF for each page in the original.
    (Works in my V9)
