Hello to all,
I am wondering whether you can help with an annoyance in setting up shared reviews under Acrobat 9.
Background: I first established shared reviews at my company using Acrobat 8 and our own internal WebDAV server. The setup worked, and still works, marvelously. To set up a shared review, I would select "Send for shared review", select the previously-stored server profile, request to save the file locally, give the review PDF a name, and save it. I'd then post the file to one of various locations specific to our company, and all was well.
Then the company upgraded me to Acrobat 9. Its shared-review user interface is slightly different - and contains one particularly annoying aspect. It, too, allows you to save the shared-review server address as a profile - but when you do so, you inexplicably lose the ability to choose a name or a location for the shared-review PDF. When you first set up the server, Acrobat 9 prompts you for a file name and a location - and it never does so again. Instead, any time you select the server profile, Acrobat automatically appends a "_review.pdf" suffix to the file name and saves it in the same directory as the original file. This is annoying because I almost never save the review PDFs in the same folder, and need them to have different names both in the PDF file name and on the comment server. So I really need the functionality that Acrobat 8 offered - namely, to select which file name and destination to use for the review PDF. The workaround (re-create the server profile every time) is even more annoying - we work with about 50 reviews per day, and having to retype the server address & verify it every time would get old very fast.
Does anyone know what I'd have to do to bring back Acrobat 8-style "Save As..." functionality for an existing shared-review profile in Acrobat 9?
Thanks and best regards,
