Save As defaults

Post by JNDallace » Sat Apr 20, 2019 9:29 pm

I frequently use the Save As feature in Editor. In Microsoft Word when you select Save As, the window shows the existing file name and current folder location; from there just edit the name and hit enter. Done. Almost all the programs I've ever used display the folder where the file was opened from in the Save As dialog. In Editor, neither the name or file location are available in the Save As window. Selecting browse opens the file browser to the last used Save As location not the folder the file was opened from, which means having to navigate to the actual file location manually, assuming you remember what it is. Please consider incorporating the file location in the Save As dialog.

I assume you mean what I'm seeing in Word? On the left it looks similar to Editor but to the right of "Recent","Add a Place" & "Browse" you have the current file name and folder location.

Thank you for the screenshot JNDallace,

That does help to clarify, We have seen a few requests for this recently, and while I cannot make any promises for its implementation anytime soon, Know that the Dev team is aware of growing interest in this.

Kind regards,

Let me just say with my first post here that I love PDF-XChange, it is a great program with many features that I can't find anywhere else.

However, I would like to +1 JNDallace's request for making the original document directory available during Save As. As he said, making this directory available, and indeed making it the default save directory, is standard practice on just about every platform I've used in the past ten years. Its absence on PDF-XChange is a little embarrassing and causes real inconvenience for me on a daily basis. I often want to make a copy of the current document in the same folder - with PDF-XChange, I don't even know what that folder is, or how to ever find the open document again.

Thanks for listening.
