Hi all, i’m using following droplet-code to let Quark batch the dropped files to postscripts. If you have a quark-doc with, say 4 pages, it makes a 4 postscripts,1 of every page. You can drop multiple quark-docs on the droplet…I found it on http://homepage.mac.com/e_s_m and it works great!!
When run it asks for the filename to give the new postscripts. For example if you type “magazine_34_” it will name the batched postscripts “magazine_34_1”, “magazine_34_2” etc.etc. Perfect, but now i have quark-docs with only one page per doc and i want the postscript to have the exact same name as the quark-doc. Can somebody help me with this??
