I'm newbie to Automator/Applescripting and I'm trying to figure out if Automator and/or Applescript might be used to launch InkScape.app and do an import of a user selectable file and have InkScape export/save a HPGL version afterwards in a user selected destination.

Only I'm not sure howto make InkScape play along if possible at all. I can easy do a simple 'Launch Application' action but it doesn't accept and Finder Item as input from a previous 'Get Selected Finder Items' So I assume I'll need to trigger InkScape's Import (Cmd-I) action after launching it. Only howto do this?

Hints appreciated, TIA!
