I'm looking for a "macro" that opens the "saveas dialog" with "PDF" as the "Type" already selected, at that point I would like to take control of the dialog and choose the folder location.
Will this work for you?
Unfortunately no, Thanks.
Jeff why you need a macro, you can actually do it using CutePDF
It will basically print the files as PDF and give you option to name your files (in case you want) and choose the location. You may set it as a default printer and in case you don't want to set it default, then it can routed thru a macro.
I have Adobe Standard installed, will CutePDF interfere with Adobe?
NO, it'll work fine.
Here is a macro I use in SW2010 that will save a pdf into your part/assembly/drawing working directory. There is even a bmp for an icon. I don't remember where I got this though. Hope this helps.
