#181 closed enhancement (fixed)

Allow Save As to save to the same file

Reported by: dmik Owned by: Gregg Young
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.4.1
Component: Lucide Core Version: 1.3
Keywords: Cc:


Currently, we programmatically disable saving the viewed document under the same name (see #178 for details). We should make it possible one day. An universal method that should work for all plugins (no matter if they internally support it or not) is to:

  • Save to a temporary file in the same target directory.
  • Close the current document.
  • Delete the original file.
  • Rename the temporary file to the original name.
  • Reopen the original file.
