Chapter 6. Working with Documents > Saving and Closing a Document

Saving and Closing a Document

Saving your files frequently ensures that you don't lose work during an unexpected power loss. The first time you save, specify a file name and folder in the Save As dialog. The next time you save, the program saves the file with the same name in the same folder. If you want to change a file's name or location, you can use the Save As dialog again to create a copy of the original file. The Save As dialog appears in a compact view (useful for saving in the same place) and an expanded view (useful for saving in a different location or creating a new folder). Expanded view includes the Sidebar, and List and Column view (). To conserve your computer's resources, close any file you are not working on.

Save a Document as Rich Text or Microsoft Word

For plain text only, click the Format menu, and then click Make Rich Text.

Click the File menu, and then click Save As.

Type a name for the file, or use the suggested name.

Select the hard drive and folder in which you want to save the file.

To change the format of a file, click the File Format pop-up, and then click Rich Text Format (RTF) or Word Format.

Click Save.
