    Strange crash after exporting PDF...

    jsavage77 Level 1

      I have a script with the following at the end:


      var pathName = "~/Desktop/salesChartEMC.pdf";

      var saveName = new File (pathName);

      saveOpts = new PDFSaveOptions();

      saveOpts.compatibility = PDFCompatibility.ACROBAT5;

      saveOpts.generateThumbnails = true;

      saveOpts.preserveEditability = true;

      templateFile.saveAs(saveName, saveOpts);


      alert("PDF successfully saved as "+pathName);


         The script keeps crashing at the templateFile.close(...) line.  If I comment out that line, the script works without crashing and I can switch back and forth between open documents and work as normally.  However, as soon as I manually close the PDF that is still open, Illustrator crashes again.  Has anyone run into this behavior before?
