Need "Save a Copy" suffix checkbox option, like "Export As"
Much like the recent fix to the "Export As" dialog box which added a filename 'Suffix' checkbox option when saving an image or images, would it be possible to also get a Suffix checkbox option added to the "Save a Copy" dialog box? When I need to generate a PDF using Save a Copy (my go-to method, less cumbersome than Print>PDF) which is several times per day, I don't want "copy" added to the filename and I have to remove it every single time before saving. Thanks.

Thanks for the reminder that Ps already has that feature :) Either option would be great to have in Ai, whichever one makes the most sense. Right now, checking "Use Artboards" on export in Ai is a prerequisite to checking the Suffix box, so I'm not sure whether the Suffix box would work for PDFs since artboards only apply when exporting images. So perhaps the Preferences setting would be best. Cheers!
Photoshop has a dedicated command for changing this behavior: in Preferences > File Handling: Do not append "copy" to filename when saving a copy.
It feels like you want the same thing in Ai, right?
Do you prefer this as an option like Ps has, or do you specifically want a 'Suffix' checkmark, like we have in Ai now on export?
Both ways are consistent, but ...differently :)
