    "Save as" opens new window


      In CS 3 I was able to use the "Save as" option to save the file as another name and keep it as the active window without having dreamweaver open a new tab or window. Anybody know how to do this? Is there an option somewhere in CS 4? I open and save as many files and adding the extra "click" to close the previous window is taking up time.

          Wow. You must be really (I mean REAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLY) pressed for time that a single click is too long to do.

          How did you ever find the time to post here about it?



          Honesty, when you save as.... just hit Control-W (Command-W on Mac) and close the new tab. Unless of course that takes too long.

            Control-w will close the active file. I am saving in consecutive order.


            File name - 01.txt > save as >

            next filename - 02.txt; 03.txt; 04.txt


            and so on.


            The active file used to become the new file name and not open it in a new tab or window. So, I have to close the previous window each time. It is a little more cumbersome than you might think when we are talking about 50 to 100 files copying and pasting.


            Thanks for the help,
