I came across an old, yet awesome, batch print trick for macOS yesterday. I had a series of PDFs that I needed to print and didn’t want to have to open each file to do it. I read about it in a post by Jesse Chapman titled “How to batch print multiple files in Mac OS X without opening them“.

The other day I wanted to print 25 PDFs without having to open each one and go to File > Print. Sounds simple enough. Turns out, it’s so simple that I couldn’t figure it out for quite a while.

There’s probably a command line way to do this, and I’d love to find that too. For now, this is pretty cool!

    1. I was really impressed with that. Part of me felt I wasn’t trying hard enough using a GUI but the rest of me didn’t care. I didn’t have much time.
