QB Desktop - Saving Tax Form PDF to non standard location RESOLVED

RESOLVED:

Thanks

It appears after i saved a FEDERAL form (not state) all is well and it retains the new save location.  I posted after doing only a state form.  After doing Federal, it resolved itself

 

 

 I have moved my Quick Books company file to a "non-standard " file locattion on the D drive, not C drive when I moved to a new computer, as per all the discussion topics I could find. Company is working fine in new location.  I would like to move my saved tax filings to the same non-standard folder tree.  When I create a file and select SAVE AS PDF - it defaults to the C (standard install) location.   I select the location I want it in (D drive) and save it.  It DOES NOT SHOW UP in saved filings and if I try to save again, it is back to the orignal default location on the C drive.  Has to be a way to change or keep the default location I want, not what Intuit defaults to

I have on the D drive where I want a path of \DOCUMENTS\INTUIT\xxx TAX FORM HISTORY\states

Pretty much identical the C: path it is trying to use incorrectly

Thanks in advance

I can not help with the QB issue in save pdf

 

I print to pdf, have since forever, and it remembers the last place saved to.  If you do not have adobe suite with the pdf printer, cute pdf and other free utilities do

Payroll Forms PDF is not the same as Save as PDF. It's a sort of internal Attachment.

 

Take notes and make sure you can Reverse this, if this does not do what you need:

Open that program. At the No Company Open screen is fine; you are not working in a data file for these changes.

Use F2.

Use F3.

Click on the Open File tab.

Click on the qbuser.ini file.

Click the button Open File.

Look at those first few lines.

If you make changes, you save the changes, exit QB and relaunch it.

 

"ini" filetype = initialization settings.

 

Be very sure you understand this sort of thing, before making these changes. We don't know your level of comfort with Windows tasks like this.
