Mac OS X How this passed through Apple's Mountain Lion testing is beyond me. "If one edits a document, then chooses Save As, then BOTH the edited original document and the copy are saved, thus not only saving a new copy, but silently saving the original with the same changes, thus overwriting the original." Just goes to show: do not mess with my ability to save my stuff. There is no one-size-fits-all for this kind of delicate stuff.

Being a bit conservative having accumulated lots of set habits over decades on computers I never took to the Duplicate function, although I understand why it might be a clearer way to do things to new users, so I used the technique shown here

to permanently replace the Duplicate menu item with a 'Save As...'

So this bug is a bummer, let's hope they get if fixed in 10.8.1
