Save as PDF Script Step Challenge


     I've been playing around with various options on the Save as PDF Script step and can't quite get to where I ultimately want. It's probable that I won't be able to, but I thought I would throw is out there.

     Does this script step allow for a way to get to the Save As Dialog box with a file name generated during the script step, but still allow the user to decide where to place the file? Using the Get ( DocumentsPath) function and a few other things in the $PathVariable does everything I want except it automatically saves it into the Documents folder without giving the user the option as to another location (in a "Save As" dialog box). If I deselect "Specify output file" in the Save as PDF script setup, I can't find a way to automatically name the document, but of course the user can name the file themselves and place it where they want. I guess I want this but with the file name pre-populated.

     Any ideas?

     BTW: PhilModJunk's tutorial on $Path variable in Script steps was a great help:  Exploring the use of a $Path Variable in Scripts
