  • 9222 Save As... v Clone...

    File Formats' "Save As..." (left version) and "Clone..." appear to perform the same function on their respective object types. This would be clearer if they had the same name.

    E.g. "Duplicate..."

    I'm not sure where you're seeing "Clone...". We use "Save As..." for cases where the object has a name (ex. File Formats, Sessions, etc.). We use "Clone..." for cases where the object does not have a name (ex. Grammar Items, Replacements, etc.). Yes, they do similar things but there is a difference.

      Grammar tab.

      Apart from the label?

        Chris,

        "Clone" and "Save As" are different.

        As Erik described earlier:

        "Clone" is used for items that don't have a name.

        "Save As" is used for items that are named.

          Note: Clonable named Elements on the Grammar tab fail to accord.

            No, the Clone button you are referring to clones grammar "items" which are not named (although they refer to named "elements"). Named grammar "elements" are not directly manipulated - they exist only by reference from grammar items.

            IOW, one may want to make several clones of a grammar item, each with different terms but all applying to the same element name. "Save As" wouldn't make sense in that case.
