Hi, have a workflow question for you script-writing gods.
Is it possible to create a script that will automate the process of saving a document, then saving a PDF of that document, then printing that document out?
Right now my manual process is:
Save the file
Save the PDF (I have a custom preset PDF setting I use based on Smallest File Size, but with Crop Marks on, Information on, Document Bleed on)
Then I print the document out (I use 1 of 3 possible presets, custom made based on the document.)
If I need to set up 3 different scripts depending on the print out, that's fine, it would still simplify the process down to one click.
I haven't done any scripting before, so I haven't a clue where to begin or if any of the above information is enough to get something started.
Would love to hear any helpful feedback to get me started, at least.
app.activeDocument.exportFile (ExportFormat.PDF_TYPE, app.activeDocument.fullName+".PDF", false, "My Export Preset");
app.activeDocument.print (false, "My Print Preset 1");
