Quark Print Postscript

I am having an inconsistent problem with a script I have written to automate the creating of PS files from Quark.

I have already taken into account the various posts about this subject on this site, in particular … JJ’s post on Thu Feb 27, 2003 10:28 am called Quark → PostScript: How-to.

His recommendations say to print the PS directly to the root of the Startup disk and also ensure Background printing is turned off. My script does this but I still get the error -48 on some files. If i send a batch of say 9 files through the script 2 of them will throw up this error and the rest will work perfectly.

Has anyone had a similar problem like this and found a solution?

Again I can’t help with that error code.

Can you explain in more detail what you are trying to do?

I use a script which takes 1000’s of quark files and generates PS at one of two sizes. The only issue I have is I don’t want to embed the fonts. Still working on that.

It works by selecting a source folder rather than a Folder action, but it could work either way.

Let me know if I can help.
