my script creates an artboard in my pdf file. i need to print this artboard only.
if i go to file/print manually there is an option 'Bereich' (pls see screenshot, my illustrator is in german language), so only the 2nd page is printed. (exactly what i want)
up to now i could not find this option (or something similiar) within vbscript.
appRef.ActiveDocument.Artboards.Add(Array(Rminx,Rmaxy,Rmaxx,Rminy)) ' vars are correctly set before
Set jobOptionsRef = CreateObject("Illustrator.PrintJobOptions")
Set printOpts = CreateObject("Illustrator.printOptions")
printOpts.JobOptions = jobOptionsRef
jobOptionsRef.Designation = 2 'aiAllLayers
these lines prints 2 pages: 1) main document 2) artboard
if i set
jobOptionsRef.Designation = 1
only the main document is printed - but not the artboard. i need exactly the other way round, only the artboard but no main image.
pls could somebody help me with this problem?
thank you very much!
