Default save as folder  in acrobat XI

Oct 21, 2012 4:35 AM

In acrobat X and before, when we complete editing a pdf file, and then use "save as" to save the work, the default folder is exactly the destination of the modified file, but in acrobat XI, it is not, so when we choose "Save as", sometimes it will be a boring work to select the original folder.

 

please consider this in further updates, or if there is something wrong with me, please tell me!

    Thanks.

    Yes, It seems like a problem.
    By default it should prompt for the same location where the file is contained instead of some different location.

    I'm also encountering the same issue... Acrobat XI Pro on Windows 7 Home Premium. No browser used.

    I am having the same problem and it is a major issue. When placing a signature, Acrobat xi uses the Save As...  dialog and the location shown in the dialog is not necessarily where the original file resides. The user has to try and find where the proper location of the file is to overwrite the original .pdf with the signed copy.

     

    This needs to be fixed ASAP.

    Yes, huge annoyance.  Our file structure is very deep, and finding the specific file again once it is signed is a major pain.  I do not see any variables in the preferences to allow this change.

    Ditto here.  I operate a paperless accounting office and use Fujitsu Scan Snap with preset profiles that allow me to scan client documents and save to a specified folder location.  The Save As function now defaults to the folder last used.  This creates a major time problem for me right at the time I am beginning my busy tax season.

     

    Please get this fixed ASAP.  It is a severe problem/bug for anyone upgrading to Acrobat XI

    Is there a registry fix for this or should we wait for a maintenance release?

    It appears this very annoying problem has been resolved in 11.0.1, now if I can only get my keyboard shortcut to the Set Page Box (Crop) dialog back...

     

    Thanks Adobe!

    I have a related question, as I am considering upgrading to Acrobat 11 from 10:

     

    In the "Save As" dialog box, is there a Windows search box built in, like many programs have? So, that, after you scan something, and select Save As, the dialog box has a a search box (usually at the top right) where you can type in the first few letters of the folder you want to file the newly scanned document in. The folders matching that search will then pop up as choices, and you can quickly select the correct folder to save in. Without that, for newly scanned docs (I use Fujitsu Scan Snap), I have to drill down into a lot of nested folders, which takes a lot of time. That's why I keep hoping Acrobat will get the search box in the Save As dialog, and then I'll upgrade. Can anyone tell me if it's in 11 (i.e., XI)?

     

    Thanks,

    Jim
