I suppose that it depends on what you are using to create a new graph. I 
create in Intaglio, Save As e.g. "graph.Intaglio" in a folder called 
"Graphs" and Save A Copy As "graph.pdf" in a folder called "Figures". 
The pdf is cropped and the two Save remember their respective folders.

If only I knew how to write scripts, I suppose that it could all be done 
with one button.
