Generating .PDF and .DWG with macros

Hi, I posted this on another thread about 4 weeks ago but I didn't get responses. I was wondering if anybody would be kind enough to make me a macro to suit my workflow a little bit better.

I would like to be able to press CTRL+Shift+S and it to bring up the Save as menu and run the macro. I can then save the drawing with a file name.

 

When I then save the file as a .slddrw file I would like the macro to complete the below tasks:

1, Save a .DWG with the same file name as the .slddrw drawing.

     The .DWG to have a file location on the server. Location: N:\5. DWG Files

2, Save a .PDF with the same file name as above but to also include ' - 'Revision' e.g. Drawing1 - Rev A.

     The .PDF to have a file location on the server. Location: G:\Master Drawings\Provisional Drawings\2. Design Spec Drawings

 

The revision is linked in my drawing via line 10 on the custom properties and gets updated when I add in a revision table. See the below image.

 

 

Thank you for your time
