Macro 8x11 PDF quick button

I have the following macro for a quick PDF.  This works the first time you use the button, however, it does not work multiple times.  The new PDF won't override the previous one saved and cancels the command.  I would ideally like for a diaglouge box with a save prompt to appear, but I am unsure of how to do this.  Feedback would be greatly appreciated.  This is a very handy macro.

Thanks!

We used to have the same problem on our older version of AutoCAD, but now we switched over to teh AcroPlot Pro soft ware. It's very user friendly and the PDF files are half the size if you would create it with Adobe Professional.

Try this macro for AcroPlot.  Change "Client" to the name of your *.ctb file.

after you run the command, you need to window the area to print.  Then a prompt should appear asking you where to save the PDF file.  Let me know how this works for you, CC
