export to pdf - file path

Hi there,

When I save a file, it automatically saves to the last used directory.

When I 'export to PDF' (exporteplotformat) it does not.

It goes to 'my documents' folder because I accidentally changed the default file location.


As you can imagine, it is a pain to have to navigate to my last used folder every time I want to export to pdf.


Anyone know how to get it back to normal? By which I mean, when I export to PDF, it saves to the last used folder.

Is there no answer for this issue? I am having the same problem in AutoCAD 2015, where it wants to save the pdf file to a default location, rather than the last pdf file save location. When generating multiple separate single- pdf documents for multiple disciplines on a single project, the constantly- repeated unnecessary navigation becomes tedious and time consuming.

No answer yet...

Although I suspect that it has something to do with my .CUI file.  This issue has followed me for all versions that I've used since 2010.

I don't know exactly what was changed in the workspace setup, but I had it working at one point.

I haven't had time to learn the ins and outs of .CUI files.

Do you happen to be a .CUI expert ?  :smileytongue:
