I have adjusted one of my existing file set scripts to use  .makePDFPresentation()  for a multi-page output...

 

(A): Where will the 2 page PDF file be saved? Same folder as originals (no GUI)? A named sub-folder in the original folder (no GUI)? A user defined location when the script is run (GUI)? Somewhere else?

 

(B): In your example filenames, what would the final PDF filename look like for the two output files?

 

i.e.:

Untitled-1_Untitled_2.pdf

Untitled-3_Untitled_4.pdf

etc?

 

Anything else?
