Is there a way to modify where the default PDF export location is? I want to set it so that the PDF exports to the same folder as the InDesign document.
As an example, I open File A, saved in the File A folder, and export it to a PDF, also saved in File A folder.
I then open File B, saved in the File B folder, and when I go to export the PDF, I want the location to automatically be the File B folder, not the File A folder.
Hope that makes sense.
Each InDesign document 'remembers' the location of the last pdf export. Export file A to folder A, file B to folder B, and this will remain sticky. There's no such possibility to tell InDesign globally "export pdf from any file to their relevant folder". Or any 'default' folder for pdf's. Got file C from folder C? Rinse and repeat.
Newly created file (while it hasn't its own export history yet) borrows (offers) the path from the last exported file.
Take it or leave it, that's the way ID works.
