I don't think that's possible. But you may simply define an action and bind it to a shortcut key/ run it in batch.
I'm putting several thousand files into a database, but first I have to rename them all to fit our structure. So I can't batch them unfortunately...unless there's something I don't know about that. I guess I could just save them all as .ai's first, then after renaming them all I can run a batch for them all to be converted to .eps. I'm just trying to do this without having to use he mouse at all...for the sake of my wrist.
