Hi there,

I have searched the forums for a solution to this but haven't had any luck.

Is it possible to create an action that asks you to type the name of the file in the 'save as' window?

Currently when I create this step in an action it will always save it in the same location with the same name and file type. However I need this step to be more flexible and allow me to choose where to save the file and what to name it. 

Any help much appreciated.

Dan

@Daniel Marple - Try ticking the modal control checkbox next to the action step.
