Topic: AppleScripting EPS Generation in Acrobat 5

I am currently generating EPS files from Acrobat 4 in AppleScript using PreFab Player to script unscriptable portions (of which there are plenty, unfortunately). With the release of Acrobat 5, I was hopeful I could eliminate the use of PreFab Player and use Acrobat 5's AppleScript support exclusively to do this. After reading the SDK and looking at the AppleScript dictionary for Acrobat 5, I am lead to believe it may be possible. However, I simply cannot get the syntax to work. I know that to generate an EPS from Acrobat 5 you do a Save As with the using parameter to select the type of file format conversion you desire (in my case EPS Conversion). I would like to be able to change specific options relating to PostScript Level, etc. From the dictionary, it looks like it is possible. Any Ideas? Thanks.
