"Extract PDF Text" doesn't allow change of output path

Hi,

I've created an Automator service to allow me to quickly extract text from PDF files. Unfortunately, it won't allow me to change the default output path for the text from Desktop to a folder of my choosing.

I navigate to the desired folder, select it, save things, but when I re-open the Automator service, it displays the default of Desktop again.

I tried putting in a Move File workflow to at least move the output once it has been extracted, but that still leaves an empty file on my desktop, with the text file in the directory I chose.

Can anyone suggest how I can get around this?

Thanks
