    Unwanted duplicates when saving pdf's in Reader


      Compared to other problems, more of an inconvenience -

      but time consuming none-the-less:


      using Adobe Reader 10.1.1


      Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 (11C74):


      when I request to "save as" a pdf,

      Reader will save a duplicate copy -

      to both the location I specify (with a chosenfilename.pdf)

      as well as

      to my desktop (with originalfilename.pdf).


      This has been happening for the last several itterations of Reader,

      but did not happen with Reader version 9.


      Suggestions on how to augment this duplication so that

      only my specified copy, with specified location and filename,

      is saved?

          There is nothing Reader is doing that could be the cause of this. Where are you doing a save as from? Where is the original file? The two possible causes or human error (we can figure out if you are doing something to cause this) or machine error (your hard drive is corrupt with cross directories, this means you need to either erase your drive and restore from backup or try to boot from your hidden OS X.7 Restore partition and try running Disk Utilities.) Let us hope that this is just something you are doing inadvertently.

            As I see things, in any program, if I do a Save As to FileA in location A under the name FileB in location B, I'll end with two versions of the file: one called FileA in the original location A, and a second called FileB in the chosen location B...
