I found some threads with users having problems with new autosave and duplicate feature, and none of them contained an answer, and I was asking myself if there is an "Apple give us the save as button" back thread somewhere already.
First of all this autosave behaviour. I really don't want pages or numbers to save every nonsense I may write in a file, sometimes by simply mistyping cmd-v in a wrong window, without me telling it to do so. How dumb is that?
Second, why is the save as button gone? And no, duplicate is not the same, because duplicate doesn't start in the same folder. If I write an invoice to the customer, I take the invoice from the last month, click save as, select new number and change some dates and sums. This means, I did before 10.7. Now I have to find this very invoice on disk, which is not everytime easy to click through, click c&p, create a new invoice, and than i can start working on it. Annoying. If I click duplicate in an open document, it starts with the default folder, which is wrong in 99.99% of the cases.
Alas, the autolocking function on freshly created copies. This is just dumb. Really.
So, what the deal with removing such a simple button as save as?
I was being using iWork for business since 2007, and I have had hard time to convince everyone in the office to be on mac, and just as I achieved that, ... Well, now the people want to move to MsOffice again, isn't it silly? Thank you Apple.
P.S. And yes I tried to live with it for 9 month, but I can't get used to it.
P.P.S. I don't want to use ms-office....
