    Remove file name prefix when exporting to PDF

    tlumbis

      Hello,

       

      I found a script here which exports the active document as a PDF to the desktop.

      I would like for it to change the file name such that the first two characters are removed.

       

      Example:

      The existing file name is: X_pagelayout.indd

      I would like this script to create a PDF named: pagelayout.pdf

       

      Thoughts?

      Your help is very much appreciated.

       

       

      var myFolder = "~\Desktop";

      var myDoc = app.activeDocument; 

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

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