    clarification

    you want to export the illustrator file as a pdf with the extra option to embed the original illustrator artwork

    right?

    and about that original illustrator artwork being embedded / attached in your pdf file, you want to make sure that one has all the images embedded when reopened in illustrator again

    right?

    than your lucky

    just click "include linked files" in the options section of the illustrator ai format saving dialog box. reopen the file and now save as pdf, now you dont need a script, and it will always work.

    when you export a pdf all images are automatically embedded. But you can create action if you like. Script writing is not necessarily

    momo.cassiopeia has understood perfectly

    ...you want to make sure that one has all the images embedded when reopened in illustrator again

    or just click "create PDF compatible file" as well. This ai file can then be opened by a PDF reader.

    PHP Code:
    tell application "Adobe Illustrator" 
    set thisDoc to current document 
    embed placed items of thisDoc 
    end tell 
    this script makes what I wanted

    you can save it

    Predefiniti/IT_it/Script (italian version)

    since this is applescript we now know that you are on a mac, but if all you wanted to do is to embed all linked files you could do this in the links panel as well. a script would imho only be useful if you could assign shortcuts to it or start it via actions but both is not possible with illustrator. So i don't get the benefit. could you please explain?

    u can embbed image to ai file, but i think it is not need when u are working.
    cause u'll be difficult to edit or change original image (by photoshop ex)

    when u finish your work, best way is export to PDF (always include all image automatic)
