Using Automator to automate repetitive pdf exports

Post by MarkyBoy » 25 Jan 2013, 00:49

Hi, Im trying to speed up my workflow... I have 10 different language versions of a catalogue (100 pages); I often need to output say 10 pages from each catalogue (the same page numbers) to a pdf for client to amend or whatever... I tried to use Automator's record function to record the procedure of exporting, giving it a title, selecting the pdf output style and then typing in of the page numbers. The automator app fails when I run it, perhaps an an applescript would be better run from within Quark, or maybe some other suggestion?

Hi there! Almost 1 month since you posted. I don't really know Automator processes. What would you expect from a script to do? Can't you find code in the archives here to saving as PDF? Are the Quark files in one single folder or spread all over the disk or the network?
