There are several ways to save a Gnumeric workbook that is currently open.
Existing files can be saved directly but this process does not allow a user to change any settings to the file creation process.
If the workbook has already been saved to a file or if the workbook was opened from a file that already existed, Gnumeric will simply overwrite the file with the newer version.
Select, in the File menu, the Save menu item.
Click on the Save button:
Type the combination Ctrl+s, typing both keys simultaneously.
Users wishing to save an existing file to a new file must invoke the Save As... dialog. The Save As... dialog can be invoked at any time to save the current workbook to a new file with either a different name or a different file format type. This dialog is automatically launched when a user attempts to use one of the methods described above to save a workbook which does not already have an existing file.
The Save As... dialog asks the user to provide a name for the file to be created, to select a folder in which to place the new file, and to select a file format type for the file.
Launch the File Save dialog.
In the File menu, select the Save As menu item.
Name the file. Open the folder containing the desired file.
In the text entry area, enter the file name.
Select the desired folder in which to save the file.
Select one of the standard locations to open the file.
Specify a file format type.
Click on the Save button.
The remainder of this section explains these steps in greater detail, first, by describing the components in the File Save dialog and, then, by explaining each of the steps above in greater detail.
