Saving a File

The first time you save your work in an application, the Save As dialog asks you for a location and name for the file. When you save the file on subsequent occasions, it will be updated and you will not be asked to re-enter a location or name for the file. To save an existing file as a new file, choose File -> Save As.

You can type a file name and choose a location to save from the drop-down list of bookmarks and commonly used locations.

Saving a File in Another Location

To save the file in a location not listed in the drop-down list, click Browse. The Save File dialog is displayed.

Note - The expanded Save File dialog has the same features as the Open File dialog, such as filtering, find-as-you-type, and adding and removing bookmarks.

Replacing an Existing File

If you type the name of an existing file, you will be asked whether you want to replace the existing file with your current work. You can also replace the file by choosing the file you want to overwrite in the browser.

Creating a Folder

To create a folder to save your file, click the Create Folder button. Type a name for the new folder and press Return. You can then choose to save your file in the new folder.
