    How can I change the PDF export directory on my Samsung Chromebook?

    Here is some brief background to the question:

    I have used an Android tablet in the past. I use the Android app LectureNotes in my classroom for recording the notes for the day on. Then, I export the file as a PDF. I use DropSync to automatically sync these files to a folder in Dropbox. My students have a link to this online folder and can access the files anytime they need. The process is almost automatic and very simple. I use an old Note 8 tablet that is dying and I am looking to replace this. I thought it would be great if I could replace it with the new Samsung Chromebook Plus. I definitely need the stylus support.

    In LectureNotes, there is a setting to set the PDF export directory to a location on the device. On Android, this was easy-peasy. I can't get it to work on my chromebook. I know that there are issues with using Android apps on Chrome OS. Is this one of those cases? The thing I don't get is this: If I use the default directory, the PDF is saved perfectly. The only problem is that the default directory stores the PDF mixed in with all of the other LectureNotes files. This wouldn't work to have DropSync sync all of those files. If I change the directory, then when I choose to export the file to PDF, I get a message that the file couldn't be saved.

    Anyone have any ideas? TIA.

    @sahmad88: The Android emulator on Chrombooks is based on Android 6.0. This means that you need to give LectureNotes the STORAGE permission in the Android system settings (that users are able to revoke app permission was added in Android 6.0) if you wish to set a custom PDF directory.
