Extract Pages Destination Folder

Post by evdbogaard » Wed Apr 26, 2017 9:00 am

In the Extract Pages dialog the default Destination Folder is the MyDocuments folder.
Is there a way to set the default Destination Folder to the folder where the original document from which the pages are extracted is sitting in?

Of course I can change the Destination Folder each time manually but it would be lots more convenient to have PDFX do this for me.

Hello Ed,

This is not currently available in the Editor, but is possible in the PDF Tools 'Extract Pages' operation.
The Tools will normally work with already existing and saved files - while the Editor might be displaying e.g. a file opened through browser and file permissions there are more tricky. So the editor will remember the "last used" folder - so if you change that "Documents" to e.g. Desktop - the next Document -> Export pages will default to the desktop as well.
