    I want to suggest an Edit menu option “Save a COPY as…”

    Which ask for an new name
    and save the current doc with that new name,
    but leaves the current file with the current (old) name open.

    This will help on making backups of current work.

    Thanks.

    Also there should be an macro command for that feature.

    document.SaveCopyAs( [ strName ] );

    currently i do that by an macro in several steps:

    strOrig = document.FullName;
    document.Save(strNewName);
    editor.OpenFile( strOrig );


    strOrig = document.FullName;
    strPath = document.Path;
    strBase = fBaseName(document.FullName);
    strExte = fNameExt(document.FullName);
    strDate = fCurrDateTime();
    strNewName = strPath + "" + strBase + "_" + strDate + "." + strExte;
    //alert(strNewName);
    document.Save(strNewName);
    editor.OpenFile( strOrig );


    function fBaseName(str)
    {
    var base = new String(str).substring(str.lastIndexOf('') + 1);
    if(base.lastIndexOf(".") != -1)
    base = base.substring(0, base.lastIndexOf("."));
    return base;
    }

    function fNameExt(str)
    {
    var exten = new String(str).substring(str.lastIndexOf('') + 1);
    if(exten.lastIndexOf(".") != -1)
    exten = exten.substring(exten.lastIndexOf(".")+1);
    return exten;
    }


    function fCurrDateTime()
    {
    var currentDate = new Date();
    var day = currentDate.getDate();
    if (day < 10) day = "0" + day;
    var month = currentDate.getMonth();
    if (month < 10) month = "0" + month;
    var year = currentDate.getFullYear();
    vDate = year + "," + month + "," + day;

    var currentTime = new Date();
    var hours = currentTime.getHours();
    var minutes = currentTime.getMinutes();
    if (minutes < 10) minutes = "0" + minutes;
    vTime = hours + "," + minutes;
    return vDate + "-" + vTime;
    }

    Yes, I think “Save as copy” should be a useful feature.

    Hope I can see it in v11.0.3 and later.
