comment Renaming a file you are currently working in, why is this still not done?
Glad to see that my writing made some sense after all the confusion I was in at start :) So, yes. What you're saying is how Apple likes it to work. I've watched Apple try quite some different concepts in the past 25 years on keeping the document "in touch" with the application that handle it. They've also tried very different approaches, and MS Windows did, too. In the end, Apple seems to have settled - for now - on a few things: The "proxy" icon in the title bar that you can cmd-click on to get to the Finder window, plus the way apps can track the file as I explained above.

I guess you'd rather want a "relocate" than a "rename", because renaming would be limiting, while relocation would also allow you to move it to another place.

What's your point, Vitaly? I very clearly state at the top of this reply that it's not answering the question properly.
