Save and name a document in Pages on Mac
The first time you save a document, you name it and choose where to save it—on your desktop or in a folder, for example. Thereafter, Pages automatically saves your document as you work. You can rename a document at any time or create a duplicate of it with a different name.
Save and name a new document
Click anywhere in the document window to make it active, then choose File > Save (from the File menu at the top of your screen).
Enter a name in the Save As field, then enter one or more tags (optional).
To choose where to save the document, click the arrow next to the Where pop-up menu, then choose a location (for example, a folder or your desktop) in the dialog.
If you want the document to appear on all of your devices set up with iCloud Drive, save the document in the Pages folder in iCloud Drive. (To see this option, iCloud Drive must be set up on your Mac.)
Tip: To create a new folder for the document, choose a location for the folder, then click New Folder at the bottom of the Save As dialog. Enter a name for the folder, then click Create.
Rename a document
At the top of the Pages window, click the document name.
Type a new name, then click anywhere outside the dialog to dismiss it.
Save a copy of a document
With the document open, hold down the Option key on your keyboard, then choose File > Save As (from the File menu at the top of your screen).
Type a name for the copy, then press Return.
To save a copy of a document in another format (for example, Microsoft Word, PDF, or Pages ’09), you make a copy of the document in that format. See Export to Word, PDF, or another file format.
