Seems like I jumped through these same hoops with Mountain Lion before but here it is again.

 

I don't see a Save As  option in Numbers 09, version 2.3

 

The only options I have are:

 

Save as Template

Save

Revert to Saved

 

Anyone figured out a work around for this.

 

Thanks

    In OS X Lion and Mountain Lion, Apple has hidden "Save As" feature. To use it, press File menu in Numbers, hold the Option (Alt) key and choose "Save As"

    JmDo,

     

    Keep your eye on the File > Duplicate menu item as you toggle the Option/Alt key.

    That tells me that you aren't actually using Mountain Lion.

    The only other guess I could make is that you have applied some third party tweak or Terminal command, neither of which I'm aware of, that altered the File menu.

     

    Without pressing Option, you should see:

    When you are pressing the Option/Alt key, you should see:

    I don't actually think this is possible, but could you be downloading Numbers 2.3 in OSX 10.8.2,  but actually also have an older, not updated version of Numbers which is the one that is running? Did you determine that you have Numbers 2.3 by Getting Info in the Finder, or by checking About Numbers from the Numbers menu of the running application?

    Since I'm still running version 2.1 on OS X 10.6.8, I don't have personal experience with the newer menus, but I think that Revert to Saved and the absence of Duplicate should indicate either a version earlier than 2.1 or a system before 10.7.x. However in either of those cases, Save as … should be there.

     

    I assume when you say you are downloading Numbers 2.3 again, you mean from the App Store. I may have missed it when I read over the previous posts, but did you actually delete the old version before you did that? And install the new download?

    Okay, things are slowly getting a little clearer. The only things you can download from Support are updaters, not complete applications. So I think I was mistaken when I thought you had reinstalled the applications.

     

    I think that might be a good idea. Did you originally get iWork on a DVD? And do you still have it?
