Saving Files with the Save As Dialog Box
At times, you’ll want to set up a folder to contain a newly created file. You can easily
create a new folder during the Save procedure by clicking New Folder on the toolbar of
the Save As dialog box, or right-clicking an empty area of the file list and choosing the
New, Folder command.
You can save Word 2010 documents in a variety of file types, which can be convenient if
you’re saving a file for someone who is using an application other than Word or if you’re
creating HTML, Portable Document Format (PDF), XML Paper Specification (XPS), or XML
Obtaining Additional File Format Converters
A t some point, you might face the task of converting a document for which Word
has not supplied a converter. When this situation arises, you’ll have to install
another converter. In some cases, you can easily obtain a converter from Microsoft
Office Online or in the Office Resource Kit. If neither the Web site nor the Office
Resource Kit provides what you’re looking for, your next step should be to search
online for a third-party solution. Be sure to read user reviews and check out the
company before you buy and download the utility. In addition, you can search for file
conversion programs on shareware sites, using your favorite search engine.
Saving to a SharePoint Site
With the co-authoring and SharePoint Workspace integration in Word 2010, you can set
up your SharePoint sites to work just like another folder on your system. That way you can
seamlessly save and open files from the SharePoint folder as you would any other folder
you regularly use.
If you currently have access to a SharePoint site, you can select the site in the Save As
dialog box and save the file directly to that location. Click File to display Backstage view, and
then click Save As. On the list at the left side of the dialog box, scroll down to SharePoint
Sites. Click it, and then click the site in the right pane that reflects where you want to save
the file (see Figure 3-16). Choose the file type, enter a file name, and ill in the tag and
author information as needed; then click Save. The file is saved to your SharePoint site.
