Topic: file type conversions

Hi

Apologies for cross posting to adobe forum..

Using AppleScript to convert a PDF to an EPS, I am
running in to a problem that the file type conversion
class appears to be read only.

I want to be able to create my own EPS conversion
classes with custom properties. eg to set
PostScript level to Level 2 etc.

Can this be done? Can I specify a new file type
conversion say "com.adobe.acrobat.eps2" ?

Within Acrobat's AppleScript dictionary the
conversion class properties appear to be editable
but I'm not getting anywhere. If it has to be done as
anew batch process then thats fine because I can
call the JavaScript from within AppleScript.

Any insights into the nature of file type conversions
most welcome

Hugh
