Combine multiple EPS to one PDF via Distiller
Authored by: alan-trewartha on Mar 25, '04 07:01:56AM
Distilling multiple files is built into distiller though. We're still using an old distiller (4) on OS 9, but I bet the functionality is still there. It is not as simple as a GUI "Distill all these", but in the "Xtras" foilder there are two files RunFilEx.ps and RunDirEx.ps that are sufficiently commented to demo how to concatenate arbitrary files, or whole folders of eps/ps files

I'm not sure about the above applescript, but I know for sure with this method that font subsets are amalgamated with this method, where simple concatenation of PDFs ends up duplicating font data producing larger files than needed
