Setting or remembering Save As folder

Setting or remembering Save As folder

Setting or remembering Save As folder

Is there some way to set the default folder for the Save As (Ctrl-Shift-S) function or at least get Acrobat to remember the last folder used so I don't have to navigate down 6-8 levels for each save?

This is mainly for PDF attachments to emails. I get a lot of PDF documents as email attachments. I need to save them to specific folders, often quite a few of them at a time to the same client folder.

Many applications rememebr the same Save As folder or allow a default. In Windows, the Save As dialog box allows me to add a folder to the list on the left by right-clicking in the list. One of the options is to add the selected folder to the list.

Is there anything like that in Acrobat?

RE: Setting or remembering Save As folder

Acrobat Pro X does remember the current folder for me, while I'm working directly with it. When you're saving email attachments after viewing them, that's not happening for you.
Have you tried opening Acrobat before you start your email client, and pointing it to the point in the folder structure you're saving the PDF's to?
Other fixes might be to map a Drive letter to the level you need, or to create a short cut to that folder level, and locate it in the default folder that your email client provides.
