The option to remember PDF export settings on a document by document basis
Currently InDesign remembers the PDF export settings across the program which is good but we have to export either print or interactive based on the file. It would be really useful to have the document itself remember the settings so we don't have to keep changing back - often forgetting and sending clients print PDFs where they should be interactive.
This feature is available in latest version of InDesign

Ok. I've updated to latest version. Where is this feature, and how do you set it?

This has bugged me for a long time now. I find I am constantly switching between export settings as I make revisions to different documents. Each document should remember its own export settings.
This is fabulous. I leave pasteboard notes on every InDesign doc currently.

Good to see that I'm not alone in my idea!
I think it would be best to remember ALL export settings. We mainly use PDF but it would be really handy to remember JPEG, etc. as well.

@Javed, it would be fantastic if ALL export settings for any type of export (JPG, HTML, PDF, etc.) were saved with the document. So often, exporting is a repetitive process, and it is really frustrating having to check and then re-enter the settings each time you re-export.

It would be useful for me mainly for PDF export
I would say that it would be good if InDesign remembered the export settings for all formats on a document basis.
Thanks all for making/upvoting this suggest.
I have one question: Is this issue only limited to PDF (Print and Interactive), what if you export a JPG (or any other format) with a certain document, would you want InDesign to remember that too for that document.
