paperguy Posted May 19, 2008 Report Share Posted May 19, 2008 Hi; Even though I haven't grasped a lot of it's capabilities, it's easy to see that this software readily allows ones creative urges to be released. My problem - I need to to alter a series of .pdf's (text characters and numeric ending filenames) one at a time in Adobe Illustrator and then save them as .ai files. For the .ai files I am using pg1.ai, pg2.ai... and so on. Then I take the files into Flash CS3 and convert them to .swf files. I created a Captured macro that works reliably on the first pdf filename, e.g. XY 54 32 1.pdf and saves it out to pg1.ai. Currently in the macro I use the TextType command to input the Open "XY 54 32 1.pdf" filename and then the Save As "pg1.ai" filename. Scanning the tutorials and help pages it seems a Text File Process reading a filelist.txt with the appropriate Open and Save filenames might do the trick. In the Text File Process loop how do I get the Open and Save text variables to increment so they can be placed in the Open and Save file dialog boxes? Or is there a better way to do this?
