File|Save As

Saves the active file under a new name. If the active file has previously been saved, the original copy will remain available. If you later use File|Save after using File|Save As, it will save under the new name as well. This is indicated by the file name on the tab which changes after you use File|Save As.

When you select File|Save As, a save file common dialog box appears. You can select the folder in which you want to save and type in a file name. You can configure the initial folder of the save dialog in the Open Files Preferences.

If you do not specify an extension for the file name, EditPad adds one depending on the file filter you selected in the drop-down list at the bottom of the Save As dialog box. It has all files types for which you ticked “show in file type selection lists” on the Definition page in the file type configuration. There you can also specify the file masks for each file type. If the first file mask is in the form of *.ext then .ext is the default extension for that file type. If the selected filter does not have a default extension then EditPad does not add an extension and saves the file without an extension. To avoid unintentionally saving a file without or with a changed extension, EditPad automatically preselects the file filter of the file type that was detected when opening the file or that was selected by File menu or Options|File Type.

If you do specify an extension, EditPad saves the file with that extension. If the extension is part of another file type then all the file type dependent settings are changed to match the settings for that new file type as made in the file type configuration.

If you want to save a file with a dot in its name, such as “Document 1.0.txt”, then you have to specify the extension. If you omit the extension then EditPad sees the dot that you intended to be part of the file name as the start of the extension.
