Yep, that was it! Thank you Paula. If you can update the original instructions below, I'm sure it would be helpful to someone else.

On the Form Editor, Special Controls tab 'Preprocess' should be set to Special, and on the Settings tab 'Copies' should be set to Copies instead of Document. I suspect the latter is the issue.

Update: Both paths work; just not at the same time. I get the one designated as Copy1, but have to go into the work file to produce Copy2. If I reverse the copy1/copy2 paths, the new "copy1" is produced during printing - so it's not the path itself, but something about copy1/copy2.

Hi Nancy - I have not been able to get this to work following your example, trying to get PDFs in 2 different locations. Here's what I have:
Preprocess = Yes.
Copies = 2 (Original to the printer, plus 2 pdfs)
PDF path on the PDF tab = {PDFCopies}
Footer commands for each copy:
#[Copy,1]Assign PDFCopies, ÷\\sageserver\general\BOL\{YYYY-M}\{DocRecip}\BOL {DocNo}-{##}.pdf÷
#[Copy,2]Assign PDFCopies, ÷\\sageserver\accounting\DocuWarePDFs\AR-PrintBoss BOLs\BOL {DocNo}-{##}.pdf÷

I am now getting Copy1 where I want it (yay!) but it does not seem to be producing copy 2. I tried changing that to a simpler path (H:\) but no luck.

With PrintBoss Enterprise, multiple PDF copies of a document can be saved to different file paths.
To do this, first add an assigned variable, such as {PosPayFile}, in the file path on the PDF tab or the Positive Pay editor.



Next, add script to the PrintBoss\Footer Objects tab to assign a path for a PDF file in PrintBoss:
#[Copy,1]Assign PosPayFile, ÷C:\Location 1\PBPosPay\{WinUserName}_{CurrentDate}.txt÷
#[Copy,2]Assign PosPayFile, ÷C:\Location 2\PBPosPay\{WinUserName}_{CurrentDate}.txt÷

In the above example both [Copy,1] and [Copy,2] are PDF formats set in the Multi-Parts & Printers tab.
The file path name can contain variables. Mapped drives or UNC paths can be used.
