Users are getting Save As prompt consistently when they try save a PDF file that stored physically in user appdata/local/temp directory rather than save the changes to the same file which we opened. 

 

Anyone see this before?

We have a similar problem after updating from Acrobat Reader from 2017 to 2020 (Classic Track).

We always got a save-as-prompt on 2017, but the default path was always the path were the file was saved, so you just had to click the save button.

Now with 2020, after changing a pdf-file saved under appdata/local/temp, it defaults to the documents folder instead, making it very difficult to save it at its original location.

 

Saving the file in its original location is essential for the functionality of a 3rd party application monitoring its changes.
