The Return of Save As

File, Save As was replaced by Duplicate in Apple apps under Lion. With Mountain Lion you can use Save As once again by holding down the Option key while choosing the File menu. Duplicate changes to Save As and works as it did before Lion.

    Is it possible to make the “save as” stay or do you have to use the option key all the time?

      You need to use the Option key while selecting the menu. But how often do you need to Save As? Once in a while, sure, but it isn’t the sort of thing you need to repeat over and over.

    You mean I have to purchase the Mountain Lion update to get Save As back?

      Well, there are a lot of much better reasons to get Mountain Lion. Or, if you need to stick with Lion for some reason, you still have all of the alternatives to Save As. It isn’t like you can’t do it, it just works differently.
