Hi - does anyone know of it's possible to embed a pdf preflight profile to all documents contained within a book, simulaneously (if so is there a javascript available)?

You can embed an InDesign profile—the document has an embed() method:

 

//embeds a preflight profile named "Transparency"
app.activeDocument.embed("Transparency")

Brian, thanks for the guidance. I currently use a script for processing book documents written by Kaysan Servetsky. I'll see if I can work it out.

Thanks Rob - finally had opportunity to run the script (as part of a 'book' Batch processing script) - does exactly what I needed!
