    InDesign file name vs PDF Export name

      This is driving me insane. We have an old job number, say it's called "AB12345" that was done last year. We need to update it for this year so I go to the old job and choose File>Open and choose "Copy"

       

      It opens as "Untitled" and then I use File>Save As and choose a new file name, say "CD6789"

       

      Anytime I choose File>Export and choose the PDF setting - it wants to save the File as the original File Name, "AB12345" instead of the new file name!

       

       

      The only way I have found around this is to open the old job number and export/save to idml - then open that file and then save that as the new job number.

       

      It's a bit of a hefty work around.

       

       

      I'm of the opinion that the File>Export and choosing PDF should use the current file name.
