When I downloaded the 4.1 update I lost the "Save As..." option in my File menu.

    To get to the old Save As… dialog box you need File > Duplicate then File > Save…

    Peggy:  I have submitted a response to Eternal Robot providing him with what, I think, is another solution to the question he had asked.  Would you please let us know if I am correct. Thanks.

    I do not see my reply in this thread, so I will try to duplicate what I had previously submitted to you:

     

    If you click on File>Save the next page will, at the top, have a place that gives you the Save As option. I suppose which method you use depends upon whether you just want to save the original document as is, or want to save a copy of it (Duplicate) and go on to make changes to the document.

     

    I believe that in Lion, there is now a process called Versions. This works behind the scene, periodically and automatically saving another "version" of your document as you work on it. This saves you the trouble of having to continually save your document.

    It seems that the rare "stupid" gene has popped up at Apple. If there is a good reason why the Save As option in the File menu was eliminated, then I would be glad to learn just what it is. Every application on the planet has a Save As option. Hopefully, they will bring it back on an update.

    I guess that in fact, Save As… will disappear from every application.

    As a designer I have observed that given enough time and opportunity designers will fiddle with a design till they have ultimately ruined it. That is why we have deadlines.

     

    I do wish Apple would fix the long list of things that really need fixing instead of trying to come up with marketing "features" to justify charging for upgrades.

    They didn't charged for upgrades since january 2009

    They weren't upgrades, they were updates. There's a vast difference. As for the elimination of the "Save As" option, I think  "If it ain't broken, don't fix it." applies here.

  • PeterBreis0807 Level 7 Level 7 (33,560 points)

    In this case more like "If it ain't fixed, break it!"

     

    I'm happily finding more and more alternatives to Apple's offerings.

     

    Swinsian for iTunes, Google Chrome for Safari, XBMC for Front Row, and working my way down the list.

     

    Chrome is bloody marvelous, after having put up with Safari for years, I feel like the chains have been lifted off me!

    I thought that everybody was able to understand why my sentence ended with a smiley.

    If I remember well, in this thread, I explained the difference between update (which we got six) and upgrade we weren't delivered so, I just wished to recall to Peter that we weren't asked to pay for something since january 2009.

     

    The removal of Save As… wasn't designed to fix something, it's the way designed to embed the new features delivered by Lion.

    I would be surprised if Apple move back.

    Given the way I use documents : never use Save As… to create a doc starting from an other one, the new scheme fit my needs.

    I clicked on 'File' and then 'Duplicate'.

    I worked on the document.

    Then I clicked on the Red Spot to close the file and that's when the option to 'Save As' appeared as a drop down menu over the document itself.

    I preferred the old 'Save As' arrangement.

    I agree with evrybody here. If it isn't broken don't fix it. Apple seems to think it needs to change things just for the sake of it.

     

    Everybody and their grandmother knows that all software has a "save as" menu.

     

    Not Apple

    To Yvan

     

    As a VAR (Value Added Reseller) I quickly learnt that Apple only enjoys conversations whose subject is how clever and right it is.

     

    Apple does not employ people who disagree with it.

     

    As a faux religion it has never taken kindly to heretics, apostates or anyone who questions The One True Faith.

     

    You should know that by now.

     

    Peter
