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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
