Hi, as the title suggests, I need to find a way of automating the creation of either PDF's from a bunch of Indesign CS6 files. Based on a Macintosh and CS6.
We make a magazine every month and its files are exported to a certain standard PDF's 1.3 for the printer. This way the transparencies are unflattened. I need the PDF's again for a digital application. it can't handle 1.3. If I could make these as 1.4 my problems would be solved. Alas I need to find a way of batch processing these.
50 folders each containing 1 x indesign file.
Need to open, ignore dialgoue warnings, export pdf to folder, close the file, move onto the next folder and then do the same.
A bit like Apple's Automator.
Or the other idea...
Open up the folder, package the folder, close the file and move onto the next folder.
I know this is a big ask, but wondered if this was possible?
My only other option is...
I have 180 PDF's in 1.3 format, can I change the file format to 1.4 and then save? I thought Apples Automator would do this but it doesn't.
All help is massively appricated.
There are indesign scripts available that would do what you want. Try the Batch_Convert script from www.kahrel.plus.com
