I have been using Canvas since its very beginning (La nuit des temps.) 
but I gave up on Canvas 7 in favor of Intaglio if only for its unfailing 
Tech Help but really on its own merit.
What I do is open the PICT file in Intaglio, Save As (to have an 
editable copy) in one folder and Save A Copy As pdf cropped to content 
size (for inclusion in the LaTeX file) in another folder.
It seems to me that one should be able to write an Applescript to batch 
process but who am I to say?
