I can do on my macbook to make a final script to print to pdf? I tried with

menuitem "Print"
button "PDF"
dropdown "Save as PDF ..." near "name"
button "ok"

but it makes me a printout from the printer!
I need a pdf instead!

I thank you as always!

I don't think Finalescript can work on the OS print dialog. I could be wrong.

What are you trying to achieve, exactly? I f you want to batch print to PDF, the best way is to use a PDF print queue, like "CUPS-PDF". This creates a virtual printer that saves the PDF to disk. You can select that printer and then send all print files to it.

As I say: I don't know if Finalescript can control the print menu in this way. Certainly, it can print to the default printer.

Are you trying to automate the making of PDFs? In which case, you need a virtual printer that saves PDFs to the disk. For this, you need software like "CUPS-PDF". This creates a printer, in your list (nel' elenco di stampante), which you can select, and then send all your files to be printed through this.

Thanks for your help! .. I solved the problem by installing a virtual printer and generating a pdf with the script directly to this printer by default.
procedure
download
https://bitbucket.org/codepoet/cups-pdf-for-mac-os-x/downloads

Installation (Snow Leopard)
Install the package.
open System Preferences and go to Printing.
Click on Add Printer (the + at the bottom).
"CUPS-PDF" should be in the list, select it.
Select "Postscript" from the "Print Using" menu and pick "Generic postscript color
printer "
Click Add

use
Print to the printer normally. The output will be in / Users / Shared / CUPS-PDF in a folder with your user account's name. Feel free to make an alias to this folder on your desktop or put it in the Dock.

script:no script! only print!
