# Ubuntu – How to save/overwrite an annotated file with Evince

annotation;evince

I am using the pre-installed Document Viewer (Evince) to annotate pdf-files. There does not seem to be a "Save" option and under "Save a Copy" I need to click through the folder to find the pdf location manually because the saving location is not the original pdf location by default. ("Open containing folder" opens the correct folder, but under "Save a Copy" the default is Desktop.)

I have the feeling there should be an easier work-flow. Do you have an idea?

The said issue is apparent for Evince 3.10.3 in 14.04 release. In my case, the default path is $HOME/Downloads rather than $HOME/Desktop. Not sure why the difference.
