    Give me back my Save As...!

    In OSX 10.7 (Lion), the "Save As" option disappeared as an option for saving documents and was replaced by the combination of the "Save" command and "Duplicate". Duplicate creates a duplicate file that can be renamed and saved. This was done to prevent users accidentally overwriting a document. This feature is also part of the new Versions and Auto Save feature in OS X Lion.

    However, some users cried out for the return of the familiar "Save As..." feature. So, in OSX 10.8 (Mountain Lion) the "Save As..." has made a return although it is hidden by default. This lesson shows you how to access the "Save As..." menu in any application it is avaiable for.
