I'm having a hard time adjusting to this. I've screwed up a few documents. I guess I don't know yet how it works. Is there an advantage over save as? It's funny how many systems you go through and habits, then when they're gone the automaticity flies out the window and you're reduced to thinking.
[doublepost=1562373558][/doublepost]I see it's also in High Sierra. Or is it just in Pages?

You probably don't want Rename (which does what it says), but if you hold the Option key with the File menu open, you will see "Duplicate" change to "Save As", which is more likely what you want to use (?) (Unless you just want to rename a document.)

Thanks guys! I MEANT Duplicate! I didn't know about the option key option. I will give it a try. So what's the difference between save-as and duplicate?
