Presetting a save as destination in Adobe Acrobat.

I use Adobe Acrobat to store Hard Copy records as PDF's. The Documents are scanned and sent via email. I recieve them, rename them and save them as.... There are many of these documents. The save as location is not in on a shared network like J:\shared\dpdb\batches\records\PDFs. The save as directory is deep lots of clicks. Does anyone know how to configure the save as function to set a specified target file open when a user clicks save as?

You can set the target folder only when creating a new PDF, this is done via Printers... Adobe PDF printer|Printing Preferences  set prompt for PDF file name...

If you open a PDF and then rename via SaveAs it will use the location you have opened this from. You can however use the Batch Processing in Acrobat Pro and save all processed files in a specific folder.

This you can specify once. For the file name you are prompted if you select 'Specific Folder', in output options you can decide how to modify your file name, but these options are limited.
