I don't understand what do you mean by "right" thing. Polymode has plenty of
weavers and exporters. You are asked only once per file for what you
want. That's a small price to pay for the flexibility and having one key for
everything. Sweave workflow that you are used to is only one use pattern of
many. There is a way to set the default weaver/exporter pragmatically but the
mechanism will change in the near future so I am not promoting it at the moment.

If you don't like woven/exported postfixes please customize
polymode-weave-output-file-format and polymode-exporter-output-file-format.

Also it looks like you are not using handy completion mechanisms. Consider using
ido-ubiquitous, helm or ivy to enhance minibuffer completion. You should not
need to type or guess "pdf" to select the option.
