Just upgraded to Numbers v2.3

No more do I see "Save As"

The new thing is to Duplicate to make another copy.

When I try that I get this message:

 

"Unsaved Numbers Document.numbers couldn't be moved

because you don't have permission to access "Autosave Information"

 

To view or change permissions, select the item in the Finder and choose File> Get Info."

 

 

Have tried to change permissions to no avail.

 

Any help would be welcomed.

Thanks,

JRC

    It sounds like you never saved a first copy, so there isn't anything to duplicate yet.

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for a quick input.

     

    I do have many files from my previous version of Numbers and Pages.

    6 years worth.

    How do I change the permissions or even change "Autosave" permissions.

    Have tried in the Finder> Get Info, to no avail.

    Hi Jeff,

    I found the answer.

     

    Matthew

    I only have one Autosave information folder. Found in /Users/YOUR USERNAME/Library

     

    When I was locked out of it, the folder appeared with a small red minus sign in circle badge attached. Gone now as I added my username to the permissions list in ...Get Info

     

     

    Excellent thanks - I also found the Autosave Information folder by looking for the 'no entry' red icon you mentioned.

     

    What puzzled me is that this folder doesn't appear in a search of Finder for the folder name 'Autosave Information'.

     

    All works now, thanks for your help

     

    P.S. For anyone with same problem - this screenshot shows the folder, 6th from top- change permissions on this one (you'll see the 'no entry' icon in this view when you first get there).

    Joe,

     

    First, I am glad you figured your problem out. I think the Library is hidden from Spotlight searches because you aren't supposed to have to work with its contents directly.

     

    I haven't moved past Snow Leopard yet, so I can't check, but I thought the Autosave Information was only for information on documents that have never been saved to a real file, and that once a document is saved, the data goes directly to its file.  Do you never save any files?

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for your help. You got me started towards the finding of a conclusion.

    I have been saving my files for years spreadsheets and etc.

    Just bought the new Macmini with ML 10.8. and Numbers and Pages updated.

     

    Had no idea of Autosave until no more "Save As" showed.

     

    Thanks again,

    Joe

    If you are on Mountain Lion, you do have  Save As …, but you have to hold the Option key while clicking on the File menu to see it.

    Jeff,

    I am on ML, but did not Know about Option File to get to "Save As"

    That is great!

    Where did you find this out?

    I did not see it in the manual.

    JR,

     

    It's a System function, so it wouldn't be in the Numbers app manual. You might find it in a KB article on ML.

    Jerry,

    Thanks for the info.

    I will try to find it and other ML info as you suggested.

    Joe,

     

    One of the problems with manuals, either online or in print, is that they are often not up to date with the latest changes. That isn't to say you shouldn't read them, but a lot of helpful information can be found at other sources.

    I regularly follow the postings on several of these Support Communities (there is a thread on this forum about this Save As… situation with over a thousand posts). I also read the discussions on the Macintouch site and at MacOSXHints.

     

    Simply looking through the menus (both with and without the Option key) and looking through the panes and tabs of the inspector can teach you a lot about the possibilities availlable in an application.

    Thanks Jeff,

    I normally go to this site and Mac Rumors.

    But I am going to try the ones you mentioned and go to.

    Thanks,

    The Apple introduction to ML can be found at: http://www.apple.com/osx/whats-new/features.html

     

    You will find a reference to Save As under Autosave. For some reason they only mention the Keyboard Shortcut.

    Jerry,

    Thanks for the info. Went and downloaded the 200 changes.

    Interesting, listed as a Keyboard Shortcut.

    What do you know about ITunes and uploading photo albums to iPhone?

     

    MacMini 10.8.2  iPhoto 9.4.2, iTunes 11

    When uploading to either iPhone or ipad. Not all the photos come in as requested.

    All iPhoto libraries are grayed out (no choice avaiable)

    Checked iPhoto Library Manager, No "&" in library.

    Thought upgrading to iPhoto 11 would aleviate the problem.

    I know many people have this problem.

    Any help would be accepted.

    Joe,

     

    I'm a new iOS 6 user myself and I'm just getting my feet wet on the transfers over iCloud. If it works, but not perfectly, I doubt I have enough experience to comment on the problem. I'm happy that I have the PhotoStream business working and can move photos between devices. So far all that I have noticed is that it takes some time between when you try to move photos into the PhotoStream icon in iPhoto before they actually appear there. Probably a sync delay issue. I would have thought that they would appear immediately on the Mac since they originaled there, but that must not be the case.
