Would I make this a new script? And a new Metadata field?
This is just a code snippet, not a complete script, for you to use in the script you told was not working correctly when the pages where rotated.
A new script, or metadata field, depends if you also need the info from the original script. If not, you may just adapt the original script to your needs and store the info in the same field.
But the first script only gets the size of the first page, so if you need to know all the different sizes of the document, the code needs to be changed.
The newest script, that returns the list of sizes using the names for the standard paper sizes, is not useful for this as and A4 sheet is still A4 size even if landscape.

Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Must be some glitch where if a pdf has been rotated to landscape, it takes on the original length and width and not the update rotation. I wanted to be able to differentiate Landscape and Portrait files from one another but it doesn't seem possible for some reason.
Indeed, the page width/height properties are not taking into account the page rotation! I will have this fixed in the next release.
Meanwhile, you can also check the page rotation:

        if (Page.Rotation == 90 || Page.Rotation == 270) {
            var w = Page.Height;
            var h = Page.Width;
        } else {
            var w = Page.Width;
            var h = Page.Height;
        }

Little mistake in these new code lines (I didn't tested it previously). I've edited my post with the correct code now.

I get the following error:

At what point do I modify this sorry to add the information to the metadata? I am trying but struggling  :S

You may replace the line
  pdfe.echo(' Sizes list: ' + sizesStr.substr(0,sizesStr.length-1));
by:
Code: [Select]
    sizesStr = sizesStr.substr(0, sizesStr.length - 1);
    var FileMetadata = pdfe.SelectedFiles(i).Metadata;
    if (FileMetadata.PageSize !== sizesStr) {
        FileMetadata.PageSize = sizesStr;
        if (FileMetadata.CommitChanges()) {
            pdfe.echo('(' + sizesStr + ') [OK]');
        } else {
            pdfe.echo('Set metadata property failed', 0xFF0000);
        }
    } else {
        pdfe.echo('(' + sizesStr + ') [already set]');
    }

How do we get it to display the dimensions in the correct orientation..?

I want say, A1's that are Portrait to display as: 594 x 841 and A1's that are Landscape to display as 841 x 594..
In the above script, change the lines
var w = Math.min(Page.Width, Page.Height);
var h = Math.max(Page.Width, Page.Height);

to
var w = Page.Width;
var h = Page.Height;


thank you. I did do this already, kind of worked. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Must be some glitch where if a pdf has been rotated to landscape, it takes on the original length and width and not the update rotation. I wanted to be able to differentiate Landscape and Portrait files from one another but it doesn't seem possible for some reason.

Sometimes the PDFs I'm needing to look at are actually mixed sizes..

Is there a way to look at each page and then list the page sizes it finds?

I've managed to get the output to display as their A1,A2,A4 etc.. but it doesn't alert or display a multi-sized file.

This would be ultra handy if possible..

You describe, that it is easy to change units.

How is that done?

There's just the need to add the relevant units conversion math to the script. In the script we have the page width and height in millimeters (the default units returned from the Page object, width and height properties).
From the above script, the relevant code lines are:
Code: [Select]
var w = Math.min(Page.Width, Page.Height);
var h = Math.max(Page.Width, Page.Height);
var PSizeStr = w.toFixed() + 'x' + h.toFixed();

So, let's say we want to have our "width x height" value in inches. The code becomes:
Code: [Select]
//1 inch = 25.4 mm
var w = Math.min(Page.Width, Page.Height) / 25.4;
var h = Math.max(Page.Width, Page.Height) / 25.4;
//Decimals now matter, so better specify the number of significant digits when converting to string
var PSizeStr = w.toPrecision(3) + 'x' + h.toPrecision(3);

And the script will now fill our custom page size property with values in inches. ;)
