Drawings as PDF - Quick way to download them?

I have my drawings being published as a PDF by my Pro/e CAD worker. This is fine but in the end my users really need to be able to quickly download or email the PDF. Currently the only way to get the PDF out is to do the following:
1- Go to Drawing Details Page
2- Select "Display Representations List"
3- Click Actions>Save Representation
4- Save Representation out as .zip file to desktop
5- Extract PDF from .zip file and email etc

WAY to much work...does anyone know of a more efficient way to do this?

In reference to this conversation, is it possible to attach that pdf to an email in a workflow? Anyone done this?

I would prefer to use the workfow to construct a direct URL to the
application data primary content so the user just clicks a link to open
the content directly, assuming they have access to it.

Here is an example of what the URL might look like after it is constructed
in 10.0.

Hello


if you have a CAD worker which automatically create a representation in pdf, why not open the pdf in ProductView and simply save it ?


Best regards

Just an FYI, not sure if it pertains to this conversation but 10.1 allows you to download the PDF directly from the right click button on a representation.

As Steve V pointed out, you can do this even more directly in 10.1 now:

Tasks S1.42, S1.43, S1.44, S1.51 are complete.


I wonder whether it relates with pdf extraction process? Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
