Is there a setting I can select in ArcGIS Pro to save the export location to the same location based on the project layout. 

I have numerous Pro Projects that I use for a variety of projects that export pdf maps. 

However, Pro seems to default to that last export location used, no matter what the project.

 

thanks

Hello Robert,

I would say that if you are exporting the PDFs manually, you are stuck setting the PDF export location manually.  But, if you create a python script or model using the "exportToPDF" method, it will allow you to set a default export location.

No we don't set up python scripts for basic things like exporting maps individually. 

this particular map series has 803 polygons in the series and we only export 1 at a time every so often and we need to update the ticket number

Since its only every so often, shouldn't be a problem setting the export location manually?

So sorry I don't know how you could make this the same location each time for every user.
