My Numbers is weird, slow and almost impossible to get used to. That's why I now
I still use Appleworks Spreadsheets on my Powermac for doing daily accounting updates, and
only then import a copy to Numbers for keeping copies on my MacBookAir.
I created a template in Numbers, open it for every import, then copy the content of the import
to the template. The template is named Copy 0.
To do that I will import say "12Dec01", then need to open "Copy 0" and duplicate it (so I will not lose this template) then rename the duplicate to "12Dec01". I
then open the imported "12Dec01" and copy its content, then paste it into the renamed duplicate, then "lock" that document.
I now want to save it, but Numbers will not let me save an open document that has been locked.!!!
Why lock it if a locked document cannot be saved? Besides this issue of locking, I now have 4 open documents on the desktop: The import, Copy 0, the Duplicate of it, and the Renamed copy of it.
You know what? In Appleworks you would only have 1 document open which you "save as" with what ever name (in whatever condition of progress you want to save it), wherever to.
Accidentally, I found I can save a locked document but only after doing all these extra steps: In order to lock the document it has to be closed and saved unlocked to a folder first, then opened up again, and only then it can be locked!
This process reminds me of the old DOS systems, which questiioned everything you wanted to do with "do you really want to do that?"
I wonder whether my Numbers is damaged, or whether it has a good reason to be that way?
Or maybe I missed some instructions?
