    open a new File() by Script and set File Type to PDF fails...

    j_k_o

      Dear all

       

      I'm creating a script to download pdf Files from a server and place them into an Indesign Document. Everything works fine except Indesign does not recocnize the file Type when attempting to place the pdf and throws an error that the downloaded PDF File can not be placed due to unknown Filter.

       

      This is because File type apparently is set to TEXT (Creator is CARO) event though I write the file with

       

      myFile.open('w',"PDF","CARO");

       

      Any Idea how to

       

      - get Indesign set the FileType of a newly generated File to PDF

       

      or

       

      - Change the File Type afterwards

       

      or

       

      - tell Indesign what filter to use when placing this File?

       

       

      Thanks for your help

       

      BTW: Indesign CS5 (7.0.4), OS X 10.6.8
