Can Filemaker dynamically name a PDF?

After calling the Save as PDF function, a dialog box appears where the User is asked to name the PDF to be saved - and optionally assign a filepath for storage.

Is there a way to have Filemaker dynamically set the name of this new PDF - say from the contents of a field or variable?

 

Followup question - If this can be done and the filepath to the storage location has been scripted or otherwise assigned, in the solution I'm working on there would be no need I can see for the Save as PDF dialog box to appear.

 

Is it possible to script in all choices the User would make in this box and then have Filemaker execute and bypass showing it?

 

Thanks,
