Save PDF Web Receipts Folder – Change Default – 10.5

This hint provides information on modifying the OS X “Save PDF Web Receipts Folder” work-flow that’s attached to the print dialog, but it is for 10.4 only.

I never like having a “Web Receipts” folder at the top of my “~/Documents”, I’d prefer they we kept in a sub-folder, e.g. (“~/Documents/Personal/Web \Receipts/”). Well, the above hint was about something different that doesn’t happen in 10.5 but the comment by “Mechcozmo” provided the necessary clue.

If you want change the default location for storing “Web Receipts”, open the file “tools” in this location:
/Library/PDF Services/Save PDF to Web Receipts Folder.pdfworkflow/Contents and change the line 25 from:

destDirectory = os.path.expanduser("~/Documents/Web Receipts/")

to whatever you prefer i.e.:

destDirectory = os.path.expanduser("~/Documents/Personal/Web Receipts/")
