How can we improve InDesign?

PDF conversion retry

In InDesign CC, when you export a file as a PDF , but you previously just exported that same file as a PDF and still have it open, you get an error message saying: "Cannot save to the file [filename].pdf, because it is already open." I would like that dialog box to have a "Try Again" option.

Right now I have to click "OK", close the PDF, then go back through the exporting dialog box. The "Try Again" function would allow me to just close the PDF then just click "Try Again", which would use the same settings I just chose. This would thus skip having to go through the Export dialog box, saving a step.
