I keep saving PDFs for different projects I'm working on, but ever since I switched to Acrobat, I have not been able to choose where to save my files when I'm saving them. When I click "Save", the file just opens in Acrobat and shows up in my Downloads folder. If I want to move it somewhere else, I have to do it manually within File Explorer or use "Save As" which creates an unnecessary duplicate of the file. Is there any way I can change the settings within Acrobat to where I can actually choose where to save my PDFs when downloading them (like every other file type does)?
Does you use File > Save in Acrobat Reader?
The File > Save option is greyed out.
It sounds as if you are download in a DIFFERENT app than Acrobat (or perhaps Acrobat Reader). What app are you downloading with?
I am downloading most of my PDFs through Chrome. Is there a setting within Chrome I should change?
Change the option in Google Chrome. Details are in the help of Google Chrome.
Chrome is fine, but the key thing to realize is that Acrobat or Reader doesn't get involved AT ALL until Chrome has finished downloading. Then Chrome might decide to run Acrobat. In any case, it can't be a setting in Acrobat, because Chrome is making the decisions.
Alright, I'll check in a Chrome community and see what I can find there. What's puzzling to me though is that this didn't happen when I just used Edge to open PDFs; it only started when I switched to Acrobat.
So you can ask the right questions there, let's establish something: did you switch to Acrobat (paid product)? Or to Acrobat READER (free product?) I can't tell because you always say "Acrobat" but you posted in the Acrobat Reader forum.
Sorry! I forgot to clarify. I have the paid version, just Acrobat.
