Duplicate replaces “Save As” in OS X Lion

Duplicate

Duplicate

I am a big “Save As” user. If you make modifications to a file but want to save it under a new name all you have to do is hit Save As and enter a new file name. But in Apples OS X Lion the Save As function, in Apple applications such as Numbers and Pages, are now gone.

In it’s place Apple has added Duplicate.

With the app creates a copy of the file and brings it to the front. The original file is then cleared from the screen. Do not worry your original file is still in its directory unmodified. At the top of the new file the word “copy” has been added to the end of the files name.

Careful, this new file has not been saved. It’s just a copy and can easily be deleted. I recommend that the next step be to save the duplicate file right a way.

Hit the save option. Now you can rename the file and specify the directory it will go in.

As far as I can tell the replacement of Save As with Duplicate only appears be in Apple’s iWork applications.
