The following does exactly what I need, EXCEPT, I need the single pages as Acrobat 4.0 x1a 1.3 PDFs. Every time I run this it changes my 1.3 PDFs to 1.6! Your help is truly appreciated!
property Default_Path : (path to desktop folder as Unicode text) as alias
set The_PDF to choose file default location Default_Path ¬
with prompt "Where is the multi-page PDF?" without invisibles
tell application "Adobe Acrobat Pro"
tell active doc
close saving no
After you extract the pages, you should be able to use Batch Processing or Actions in Acrobat Professional to optimize the PDFs and set various file properties. You cannot call the optimization process in script or IAC, it can only be user run.
