How to Use the "Save As..." Command
Re-naming an Existing File
When you use the Save As command to re-name an existing file, PageMaker saves a copy of the document under the new name, leaving the original-titled file unchanged from the last time it was saved. The new file name will now appear in the title bar, and any further modifications will be saved to the new file.
Saving as a Template
You can save the formatting in a particular document by saving it as a template. This template can then be used in subsequent documents, and this saves you time by not having to format all over again.
Saving in a PageMaker 6.5 format
Saving your document in the earlier 6.5 formats makes it possible to share your documents with users who don't have Adobe PageMaker 7.0
Compacting a Large File
If you have a large document that is hogging disk space, you can use the Save As command to compact it to take up much less disc space.
Open the File menu and select the Save As option
Do not change the file name. Click on the Save button
- Click Yes when prompted whether you want to replace the existing file.
Once you click Yes, PageMaker will reorganize and save the file to take up less disc space on your drive.
The Save As command can also be used to save a new document.
