Prompt to save DWG 2 PDF

Is there a way to have AutoCAD prompt the user for the name and location when Batch Plotting using DWG 2 PDF?

Currectly I can set the default location in the Publish Option by Naming and Mane are Greyed out and set to N/A.

I am able to set the Auto Publish but that only does a single sheet.

PUBLISH has an OPTIONS... button where you can set what you need, and also decide if output is to a single PDF or multiple PDFs. Unless you are stuck in a very old AutoCAD version that is.

Under the Publish Options button I can set a default folder location and if I want a single or multiple PDF.  I still do not see how to get a prompt for the file name and folder location when Batch Plotting.  In the past I have used Adobe drives to plot and I would get a prompt for saving the PDF.

NAMING section of that pop-up, instead of N/A use PROMPT FOR NAME: this feature is only available if you use the built-in PDF driver in PUBLISH, not "adobe".
