Greetings, tudorjl !

Microsoft usually defaults to My Documents.

You can create a shortcut to whatever folder you want and place the shortcut in the My Documents folder.
(i.e., Photos, Indesign docs, Illustrator Docs, or even by Projects if you wish) or even another server or computer. This way My Documents folder is the pass-through point to as many folders as you need.



Best wishes!

unfortunately, there is no way to actually force a change in default save location (like how you would with Word). However, it should and does default to the last known open/save location.

uuuuhhh... I just re-read your title... are your refering to Acrobat or just the PDF writer/maker 7.0?

if its the PDF writer/maker (the printer used to create PDF's from other applications, then you could set the default location editing the port settings or the registry.

and just to clarify, if it is a pdf printer (Adobe PDF or PDF Maker) then here are the exact steps...

1) go to printers and faxes
2) right click the Adobe PDF printer icon and choose properties
3) click on the Ports tab
4) click on Add Port
5) Choose Adobe PDF Port
6) then a browse window would appear for you to navigate to your desired location...

I hope this helps...

This is the adobe writer/maker version 7 we are using.  Normally, this is accessed through our Citrix Client so ther isn't anything under printers and faxes.

ok... I may still be confused... hopefully I am understanding things correctly...

1) adobe writer/maker version 7 = adobe PDF writer/maker version 7?

2) if you don't see it under printers, what are the exact steps for you to create the files?
