    Open in Illustrator and Save as PDF. It can be automated with Action.

    Scripts

    Are there any sample scripts available to look at?

    We usually save .ai files as PDFs.

    Don't know why a lot of our customers don't create PDF's with Crops and Bleeds when they have created bleeds in original .ai files.

    Adobe Bridge

    I've never used Bridge, but will take a look at it.

    Is there any other information about it?

    When we save .ai file, Illustrator creates a default .pdf file that is embedded in the .ai file, so by default the file .ai is actually a ". ai +. pdf". So in most cases, we can open the Illustrator file in acrobat and keep the appearance of the file (fonts, linked images). or simply import in illustrator the client's file...

    But they can desable the option of saving with the .pdf file to have a lighter file for example ! and there we have to call them

    Excuse my inglish :)

    There is one more way to convert ai-files to pdf. Very simple - just drag any number ai-files in opened Acrobat window (not Distiller!)
    Acrobat create pdf-files using default conversion setting ps to pdf.

    This will only work with eps-files but not native ai-files or am i wrong?

    no it does not work, because when we drag the ai file in acrobat this is not a conversion of the file, but it opens the .pdf file already saved whit .ai file

    With eps-files it works in any case. It seems internal converter used - not Distiller (Adobe PDF library?). With native-AI-files it works, only if you set on "Create PDF Compatible File" option in Save As dialog.

    So this is no conversion, since Acrobat just opens the included PDF portion of the file …
