Bug?PDF XChangeEditor Save-As dialog

Post by ArchPrime » Wed Feb 07, 2018 10:42 pm

Hi - when in the process of doing a saving-as from an already open PDF, in the save-as dialog there is an option to 'add a place' - which intuitively must provide for creating a new folder to receive the file you are about to save out. Clicking on add a place however just creates a new file open dialog - which defeats the purpose; you cannot create a place or save the already open file that way.

Is this a bug, or am I misunderstanding something?
What is the solution? (other than having to create the new save-as destination separately each time)

Hello ArchPrime,

This is the intended way for it to function, albeit a little confusing.
When adding a place, it first asks you to "open" (Select) a folder to add.
Then immediately after adding that folder, it will open an identical dialog, but instead of saying "open", it will say "save", thus allowing you to save the folder to the place, and at the same time adding the place so you can quickly save there later.

Hmm, doesn't seem to work that way for me - selecting a folder to 'open' merely prompts me to then pick a file to open within that folder

Hi ArchPrime,

This behaviour actually depends on the menu from which you opted to add a place.

If you do this from File -> Open. The Editor will always ask you to open a file from the folder after adding it to the list.
If you try to Add a place from File -> Save As, the Editor will show the Save as dialogue after you select a folder and add it to the list.

Regards,
Radi
