What I want to do is:

  1. After press PDFLaTex button, it will save the modified content in a temporary folder. For example, if I am editing C:\math\article.tex, then it will save the modified content to C:\math\temp\article.tex. But the modified content is not saved to C:\math\article.tex. I would like the keep C:\math\article.tex as before, and save it manually when I need. Also, the working window stays still on the current editing document, namely C:\math\article.tex.

  2. Then it compile the file C:\math\temp\article.tex

I have already know how to compile C:\math\temp\article.tex when I am working on C:\math\article.tex. The remained question is that how to save the modified content to C:\math\temp\article.tex , but no to C:\math\article.tex. There are macros like "SaveDoc", "SaveAllDoc", "SaveDocAs" and "SaveDocCopyAs". The first two save the contents to the original file (I didn't find parameters for another folders) and the last two will prompt to ask the localization. ( I hope it is always the subfolder %P\temp and don't hope the prompt appear).

So is there a way to save the modified content into another file, but not into the original file in WinEdt?
