    I read that this feature is finally available but usually it is from reviews of the Preview version of Mountain Lion (ML).

    I just upgraded to ML and I can't seem to activate it. Was it dropped in the final release?

    I am running it on a 2009 13" MBP.

    OS X Mountain Lion now lets you rename a file directly from the application it’s opened within. This feature is supported in most bundled Apple applications, including TextEdit, Pages, Preview, and others.
    * Hover over the files name in the title bar until the arrow appears
    * Click the arrow to pull down a menu, select “Rename”, enter the new name and hit the return key to save the files name change

    Open the file menu and hold the option key. 'Duplicate' will turn into 'Save As' in most apps.
