Automatic conversion DWG to PDF with Illustror

Automatic conversion DWG to PDF with Illustror

Postby idris » 05.17.10 5:26 pm

Hi, first sorry for my english, i am a french customer.

I bought the "Ultimate Productivity Action Pack today". I want to convert a lot of dwg files to pdf or ai.

I have two problems, the first one is that the function "open illustrator files" doesn't work with my dwg files, nothing happened.

When i use jpeg files to test my action script, i have a second problem.
The second one is that the function " save illustrator document as pdf ", with " where:original document folder" give me an alert "Could not determine the original folder of this document. The action cannot proceed."

Can you email me a copy of your workflow, along with a couple of sample files, so I can test it on my end and see if I can come up with some recommendations? You can send it to me at support at automatedworkflows dot com.

I'm typically onsite visiting clients during the day, so I will reply as soon as I can when I return to the office.

Thanks,

-Ben

Support for opening DWG files was added on 2010-05-18. So, you workflow should be as follows:

* Get Selected Finder Items
* Open Documents in Illustrator
* Save Illustrator Documents as PDF
