Bulk Print Workflow to PDF

Hi there Michael.

I downloaded and placed your script as per: http://c-command.com/scripts/eaglefiler/bulk-print
When I select several eml files, and run the script from the Apple toolbar, nothing appears to be happening.
Where does the outputted PDFs go? Should they appear on the Desktop?

I’m trying to export selected eml. files I imported into EF from Apple Mail over the years.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The script works by telling the Finder to print the selected. Although Apple Mail can open .eml files, it does not seem to be able to respond to the command to print them.

Also, I don’t think AppleScript’s print command lets you save as PDF. It sends the job to the current printer.

Can bulk-print script be easily modified to save as pdf?
My guess is probably not, but I thought I’d ask. It would be nice if there was a way to save a bunch of eagleFiler txt or rtf records to a single pdf file.

You could use Automator’s “Combine Text Files” action to make a single RTF file and then convert that to PDF.

That works
The Automator suggestion will work for me. Thank you.
