I want to change the Paper Folders Location in Autofile Preferences.  
For example, when I work on foo1.bib I want the location to be  ~/ 
WorkStuff/.../.../.../foo1, but when I work on foo2.bib I want the  
location to change to ~/WorkStuff/.../.../.../foo2, etc. Because I  
have several bib's  I want to be able to go back and forth  
frequently, that's why I'd rather avoid going into the preferences  
each time.

Why not put all the pdf's in the same location? I often do searches  
and come up with many citations and pdf's  that I only need  
temporarily. By storing things separately, I know what's useful and  
worth saving, and what's not and can be deleted. (Have you noticed  
how much rubbish gets published these days? I don't want it on my  
hard disk...)
