Set Default Save Location

The default location for saving PDF documents is the last opened location.

Example: Save a PDF document to your desktop. The next time you save a PDF document, the default Save location will be your desktop.

Currently, we do not offer the ability to set a default location to use for saving PDF documents.


Set Additional Default Preferences

  1. Open the document that you want to turn into a PDF document.
  2. From the menu bar, select File and choose Print.
  3. Select PDF Complete from the list of available printers.
  4. Click OK or Print.
  5. Within the PDF Complete Document Creation Options dialog box that appears, make the selections for your new default settings by using the Permissions, Identity, and Optimize tabs.
  6. Click the Other tab.
  7. Check the box to Save Current Settings as Default for the Current User or for All Users.
  8. Tip: For the default settings to be applied, you must Save the PDF document.

  9. Click Save to confirm your selections and to create the new PDF document. The next PDF document that you create will apply these same selections to it by default.
