When I print to a PDF using the 'Adobe PDF' printer (I think this uses
Distiller), I'm prompted to save the document at the time the job prints so
I give the document a meaningful name and location and all is well.
However, at the same time, a copy of the document is automatically saved in
the folder that the printer port was created in and has a name similar to
the file from which it was printed, but with a PDF extension.
Is it possible to turn off the 'auto save' document?
This is only a problem because I've specified for the PDF printer port, the
folder in which I save most of the documents, so that the File|Save dialog
box opens in the correct folder and saved having to browse to it each time.
Unfortunately, this also means that I have to keep deleting the unwanted
'auto save' copies.
I have tried creating a special Temp folder within the correct save folder
and setting the PDF printer port to this location so at least the unwanted
files are out of the way, but of course it also means that the Save dialog
opens in this folder and I have to browse to the correct location.
It's not exactly a major problem, but as it's a situation I'm in dozens of
times a day, I'd welcome a more complete solution.
Does anybody have any suggestions?
