Save PDF to specific folder, but ask for filename

Post by chappy72 » Thu Jan 03, 2019 2:14 pm

Dear Tracker team

first of all: all the best for the new year!

In PDF-Tools there is a step called "Save Documents". I'd like to aks for a new file name, but in a specific folder (not Documents).
If I choose "Use custom folder specified" and let "Filename" empty, the scanned document is called "Document 1.pdf".
If I choose "Always ask for file location" the file dialog starts in the documents folder.

Is there a chance to do this?

Hello Daniel,

I just wanted to verify that you are using the latest version of PDF-Tools. In my tests the save documents function works well in all these cases, and the "custom folder specified" function offers its own "filename" and "when file exists" options, so that you do not need to worry about overwriting the file or misnaming it.

If you are not in build 328.1, please try updating and let us know how it works for you.
