I have recently upgraded my version of Illustrator to CS6 but have run into a problem. I batch create EPS files for print and then hand them on to a supplier. They however don't have CS6, but CS5. Rather than batch creating all of the files and then individually re-opening them and changing the EPS Version manually, is there an alternative/way to set the file version default?

Or is there another alternative?

Thanks for your time

Set the version of the EPS in the save step of any action. Then run the batch.

If you record the save step as [format] eps, then choose [version] Illustrator CS5 (v15), that will be saved in the action.

Yeah this seems to have worked. Thanks :-) – edwardgd Jun 19 '12 at 8:55
