    Illustrator PDF save script with filename append

    preachason Level 1

      I've seen many threads on scripting but they all seem to assume some basic knowledge of the languages (which I unfortunately do not). Everything I try just seems to end with a blank dialogue box and an exclamation point.

       

      What I'm looking for is simple – a script that will save the current document as a "Smallest File Size" PDF, in the same folder as the open document, with a "_LORES.pdf" filename (ideally it would overwrite any file with the same name, as well).

       

      This way, I could quickly and easily save a small PDF of a current layout in the same folder for populating into a presentation.

       

      Any takers?
