comment Renaming a file you are currently working in, why is this still not done?
I'd just like to point out that not long after I asked this question OS X Lion came out with Duplicate and got rid of Save As, and then Mountain Lion came out and allowed you to rename a file on the fly via the title bar.

So what you're saying is that within the app only the bare essentials should be available for managing a file, that every action for managing a file should be done via Finder and that the changes should be transparent. That makes sense.

Save As is less dangerous because it only does half the job. A "delete previous copy" checkbox in the Save As dialogue near where the file name can be modified would amount to the same thing, although it would take a while for people to notice it.
