Follow the "how to install" video or reference these directions for your convince 

You must install PyMuPDF

  1. Open Blender and switch to the Scripting workspace.
  2. In the Python Console, run the following commands to install pip if it's not already installed:
  3. import ensurepip ensurepip.bootstrap()
    1. Now, let's create a script to install PyMuPDF. In the Text Editor (within Blender), create a new text file and paste the following code:
    import subprocess import sys def install_package(package_name): try: subprocess.call([sys.executable, "-m", "pip", "install", package_name]) except Exception as e: print(f"Failed to install package: {e}") install_package("PyMuPDF")
    1. Click "Run Script" or press Alt+P to run the script in the Text Editor (within Blender).

    This should install the PyMuPDF package for Blender's Python environment. After installing PyMuPDF, restart Blender and try enabling the add-on again. If you still face any issues, please let me know. I am currently working on removing this manual step, but if you're reading this you'll have to.
