Use Ctrl+shift+s instead of ctrl+s Adding the shift opens the "save as" dialog and will not destroy the original. I don't see the additional complexity as needed since ctrl+shift+s does what you need it to do (preserve the original). Again, I also suggest copying the file (cp original.ext original.bak.ext) before you begin editing it. I generally use ctrl+shift+s out of habit even if I plan on destroying the original by overwriting it. -- Yours In Christ, PIT Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
