Batch convert Pro/E drawing to pdf

I have many drawings I need to convert to pdfs. Is there an easy way to automate this process within Pro/E or PDM/Link, so I don't have to open and save as pfd for every drawing?

I haven't been able to get an answer on how to do this, but I would like to be able to. We use PDF's to aloow purchasing and manufacturing to view our drawing files, it would be a lot easier if at the end of the day I could automatically run a program and keep everything up to date.

I guess there's an easier way to do it, but what I do is : - getting PS files using ProBatch distributed - adding the PS files list into PDF Creator With this, I just have to push "enter" again and again to validate all PS files created by PDF creator. Try it and you'll understand quickly. Make PS with PBatch and straight into PDF creator.
