Hi again,

looking for a script for checking files for what colorspace the file is in, CMYK, RGB or a mix of both, then adding that information to a custom handle in metadata.

you need to open them in acrobat and check for CMYK elements and RGB elements in the output preview.

The Acrobat "convert colors" tool, in its "document colors" section, list the color spaces used by the document so probably a faster way to get this information?
Anyway, PDF-ShellTools doesn't have, currently, functionality to get this.
I also don't see in the Acrobat automation API's such functionality. Its Javascript API has a colorConvertPage method, that can be used to convert page object between color spaces, but I don't see any method to report the color space used by page objects.
