Can PDF options automatically be set using script?

I've been using the "Save Records As PDF" script step to export records as PDF files.


However, because I want the same options for each one, it'd be nice if there was some way to not have to manually set these PDF options every time I call the script.


For example:

- Automatically insert the Company Name into the "Author" field of the PDF document properties

- Automatically set the security settings (e.g. require password to open - and automatically set the password)


Is there any way to automate this?  In other words, automate the PDF options without having to manually use the Save Records As PDF dialog.


If not in Filemaker itself, perhaps there exists a plugin that can do this?
