Set prefs.auto_export_xml_to_pdf in prefs.lua:

 -- Auto-exporting when document is being saved
-- if auto_export_only_if_exists is true, then the file will only
-- be auto-exported if a file with the target name already exists
prefs.auto_export_xml_to_eps = false
prefs.auto_export_xml_to_pdf = true
prefs.auto_export_eps_to_pdf = false
prefs.auto_export_pdf_to_eps = false
prefs.auto_export_only_if_exists = true
