    [AS] Saving PDF as text

    allisonblake Level 1

      Hi everyone,

      I'm updating an applescript script that worked in OS X 10.4 and Acrobat 8 but now doesn't on OS X 10.6 and Acrobat 9.

      The place it's hanging is this:

       

      save front document to file theTxtPath using conversion "com.adobe.acrobat.accesstext"

       

      I get an error that the document doesn't understand the save message.

       

      I'm not familiar with scripting Acrobat as I mostly script InDesign but I need to update this script (that someone else wrote) now that we've updated our software and operating system.

       

      As part of a bigger script, I need to save the PDF to a text file then close the PDF.

       

      Thanks!
