    PDF file name in applescript

    aflitho

      I have created a applescript to export 2 PDF's from the same file at the same time. One with crop marks and the second with out. I would like the original file name to be used, but can not seem to get this right. Below is the script. Where it says 'No Crops' or 'Crops' I would like the Indesign file name to be placed.

       

      Can any one help with this please?

      tell application "Adobe InDesign CS5"

                tell active document

                          export format PDF type to "/Users/username/Desktop/No Crops X.pdf" using "No Crops" without showing options

                          export format PDF type to "/Users/username/Desktop/Crops.pdf" using "Crops with Text" without showing options

                end tell

      end tell

          I don't have your options so I just comment out those lines…

           

          tell application "Adobe InDesign CS5"

                    tell active document

                              set docName to name

                              set ASTID to AppleScript's text item delimiters

                              set AppleScript's text item delimiters to "."

                              set baseName to text item 1 of docName

                              set AppleScript's text item delimiters to ASTID

            --log (path to desktop as text) & baseName & "_X.pdf"

            --export format PDF type to (path to desktop as text) & baseName & "_X.pdf" using "No Crops" without showing options

            --export format PDF type to (path to desktop as text) & baseName & ".pdf" using "Crops with Text" without showing options

                    end tell

          end tell
