    Saving documents


      Can some one please tell me what the difference is between save as and save a copy in InDesign CS6.

      Thank you.

          Save as saves a file that you are working on and will continue to work on.


          Save a copy, saves a new file at that point and allows you to continue

          to work on the current file.

            Thanks for your response  Bob, but it doesn't quite answer my query. I understand the "save" feature but it is the "save as" feature versus 'save a copy' feature that I'm confused about.

              Save As


              This will resave your file as a new file name - you continue working in the new file name.


              Document A -

              Make edits




              File>Save As

              Document B


              Continue working in Doucment B - Document A is in tact



              Save a Copy


              This will save your file to disk and you continue working on the original


              Document A

              Make Edits




              File>Save as Copy


              Name it Document B


              Continue working on Doucment A - Document B is saved on the drive.



              It's like a reverse of Save As
