The sample apple script /Library/Scripts/Printing Scripts/Convert to PDF.scpt works well. It prompts to select the file you want to convert and saves the new PDF to the same location as the original. I stripped out the last part of the script and placed it into a Folder Actions Script. Now it saves the new PDF to the root of the drive and not to the same location as the original.
Does anyone no how to find out if the “Convert” command has a output destination argument?
This is what I’m using now. The “/In/” path is just a folder on root of the drive named In.
Thanks in advance.

tell application “Finder” to set theString to name of ThisFile as string
set terminalCommand to "" set convertCommand to "/System/Library/Printers/Libraries/./convert " set newFileName to theString & ".pdf" as string set thisPath to this_folder & theString as string set terminalCommand to convertCommand & "-f " & "\"" & thisPath & "\"" & " -o " & "\"" & newFileName & "\"" & " -j \"application/pdf\"" do shell script terminalCommand end repeat
end adding folder items to
