Is there a way to take a large number of Illustrator files and batch save them as PDFs? Thanks!
In Acrobat Pro:
File > Create Multiple PDF Files
Drag and Drop files to window (or use the menu)
Fill this out as desired
You can also batch with Distiller, but that is now obsolete.
Or record an Action in Illustrator and use the Batch option from Illustrator's Action Panel to apply it to a folder full of Illustrator files.
That's much easier. For dome reason the other way suggested here I couldn't import the .ai files!
When i 'acrobat > create multiple pdf files' i can't import the .ai files either. BUT i can drag and drop the .ai.
Odd, but works here.
(but actually i wanted multiple .ai's merged into one pdf, so i ended up choosing 'acrobat > combine files into 1 pdf'..)
Hi Ton, I tried that, but it saves all with the same name that was recorded in the action. So I end uo with one file as it overrides always with the same name. Even having override blanked out. Any suggestions?
Check your Scripts folder for a script to do what you want.
But that only saves open documents.
Thanks for the reply. Where is the scripts folder? What would the script name be?
