Syntax: SaveAs [filename]
Abbreviation: SA

If the optional filename argument is not specified, the file requester will open and you will be prompted to select a file. (You can inhibit the file requester opening by using the NoFileReq command; see NoFileReq.)

If you escape from the file requester, you can enter the file name on the input line, the default being the current document name, if available.
