Saving Documents in Playwrite

Saving A Document

It’s good practice to save your document often. After you save your document for the first time, you can press Command+S to resave as you edit your document.
 To save a document for the first time, do this:

  1. Choose File > Save, or press Command+S; and
  2. In the “Save As” field, type a name for the document.

Choose the folder where you want to save the document from the “Where” pop-up menu. By clicking the disclosure triangle to the right of the “Save As” field, an expanded list of save locations appears.

Saving a Copy of a Document

If you want to duplicate your open document, you can save it using a different name or location.

To save a copy of a document, do this:

  1. Choose File > Save As, and then specify a name and location;
  2. The new file replaces the previous file as the active document;
  3. To open the original version, choose File > Open Recent and then choose the appropriate version from the submenu. Alternatively, navigate to the location where the original file is stored and double-click the file to open it.

Save for publishing

When you save a document in Playwrite, it saves in the file format .playwrite. This makes it easy to share Playwrite files with other Playwrite users. If you are ready to publish your document, then you need to select the save for publishing option. This produces a file with a .epub extension. To save for publishing, do this:

  1. Navigate to the File menu within Playwrite; and
  2. Select “Save for Publishing” and choose your preferred save location.

You can now use the EPUB file produced to publish to multiple eBookstores.
