Hey there. I'm not sure if something for this already exists, if it does, please let me know! If I wanted to develop a plugin or app (through maybe automator) to save an ai file as a PDF, both for smallest size and Press Ready, how would I do that? I'd like to be able to drag an ai file to the app in the dock, or write it as a service in Mac OS X so the conversion is really quick, and very simple. How could I do this?
(I'll post this to Illustrator scripting as well) I look forward to your suggestions!
I have several Actions set up for exporting different file formats and resolutions. You could make Actions for these tasks and put the Actions panel into button mode allowing you to save these out with one click from the Actions panel.
Cool, is there a way to do it through Finder? So i can drag a file ontop of the action/service/app and have it save as a pdf of the pre-determined size?
You can make a Droplet out of it with Applescript.
