When batch processing actions in Illustrator, it will not allow me to change the Transparency Resoluition and I have over 1,000 eps files to process. You can only select from the dropdown by doing it manually. The "default" or preset is Medium. I need high res.
This is what I need to do to 1,000+ eps files.
1. EPS file is open in Adobe Illustrator CS6 on Windows.
2. File > Save As> filename.eps > Desktop
3. EPS Options > Transparency > Preset: [High Resolution]
When you automate this through batch processing an action, you cannot select [High Resolution]. [Medium Resolution] is selected as default. I need for all my files to be [High Resolution].
My printer software will not read the cutlines on any other file formats so they must be High Res EPS files.
Is there a script that can get this done? Please help! Thanks
I don't have CS6 to give you the exact path, but it has to be somewhere around the settings folder...unless Adobe changed the architecture of this particular preference.
this is the full path for CS5 on Win7

good, close illustrator, go back to the file and see if there is a new entry for "custom" (it may not actually say "custom") and edit it that one to.
for this project you might as well change every entry, save a copy of the file before you make the changes so you can restore it later.
Illustrator has an override somewhere. You can completely erase the file's contents, start Illustrator, and everything is back to default. When you reopen the file, its like new. To edit this, I need to edit the main main main file. Any idea where this might be?
of course I tried it, I came up with it.
on the other hand, since you say it now defaults to "custom", you should be able to change the custom settings within the Illustrator UI to match those of the Medium preset, right?
Incorrect. There are no custom settings after changing it. When I edit the Transparency presets, it defaults to "Custom". Then I close Illustrator and there is no "Custom" settings to edit. You are saying that you can edit "Custom" settings on your end??
