    Export PDF to path

    rajnikids Level 1

      Hi everybody,

       

      I do have a challenge in exporting PDF to particular folder called "PDF".

       

      The PDF path to be exported inside the folder News/PDF/. //PDf file path.

       

      where indesign file will be inside News/File1/untitled.indd. //indesign File path

       

      The ESTK shows the error result... as "Cant find the folder".

       

       

       

      var myFolderPDF = Folder(app.activeDocument.filePath).parent + "/PDF/"

      var myJobOptionName = "Paper"; //Please provide a PDF job option name which is available in InDesign.

      var myOutFolderPathName = Folder(app.activeDocument.filePath).parent + "/PDF/"; //Please change your path as per requirement

       

      var myPDFFilePath=myOutFolderPathName;

      var InDJobOption = app.pdfExportPresets;

      app.documents[0].exportFile (ExportFormat.pdfType, myPDFFilePath, false, myJobOptionName);

       

      thanks forum

          Also used this script from Forum..

           

           

          var myDoc = app.activeDocument;

           

          var myFolderName = myDoc.filePath;

           

          var myDocumentName =  myDoc.name.slice (0, -5);

           

          var myFilePath = myFolderName + "/" + myDocumentName + ".pdf";

           

          var myFile = new File(myFilePath);

          var myF = Folder(myFile.parent+"/") +"/PDF/"  // here pdf should be saved inside the folder "PDF".

           

          myDoc.exportFile(ExportFormat.pdfType, myF, false, "Press Quality");

            Thanks I found it...

             

             

            var myFolder = app.activeDocument.filePath.parent + "/PDF/";

            var myDoc = app.activeDocument;

            var myDocname = myDoc.name.split(".indd");

            myDoc.exportFile(ExportFormat.PDF_TYPE, File(new File(myFolder+"/" + myDocname.join(".pdf"))));
