For Editor, it would open the "Save Page as" dialog, correct? Aaron should 
verify this key combo is available, and if so, sounds like a nice area. [it's
not reserved, afaik --ed.]

As for mail, using the same accel for Save as File would be nice too.

Currently, File -->Save as--> File opens a "Export to Text" (bad title) dialog 
if no html and the "Save Page as" dialog if html is included. Shouldn't it be 
opening the same dialog for both with the option to save as either .txt or 
I would *much*, *much*, *much* more prefer we keep the keybinding as accel-s 
(like it is today).  I don't think users will easily discover they need to use 
the shift-key to save.

I'd prefer to see this bug resolved as "wontfix"
nbaca just brought up a good point.  Mail has the 3 Pane AND Mail Compose.

Mail Compose is similar to Editor in that we have both "Save" and "Save As":
File -->Save  Ctrl+S  (which saves as a Draft by default) AND 
File -->Save As -->File  (Proposed "Ctrl+Shift+S)

But 3 Pane Mail only has "Save As":
File -->Save As -->File  Ctrl+S

So it would be bad that this would be different in 3 Pane vs Mail Compose. So 
I'd actually rather NOT see this done in Mail. 

(But see the benefit to Editor in which you may want save alternate versions of 
a file more frequently)
Brade, we can't keep the current shortcut for saving as a file in message 
composition, because currently we don't *have* a shortcut for saving as a file 
in message composition.

Jennifer so what is your final opinion on this?
Its this valid anymore? Mail has Ctrl+S for Save as File already.

jglick's comment 7 implies that she did not read her own comment 2, which is 
still correct.  Ctrl-S in the *compose* window (this bug's component) saves as 
Draft, and there is no shortcut for Save As File.

That seems OK to me -- how often do you need to save an in-composition message 
as a file?  Saving as a template would be more likely.  I would WontFix this 
Save as should remember what format you save as last time.  We have to save our
emails as text on network folders for job # specific archival. I only wish that
it would remember to save as text each time I save and better yet allow me to
drag and drop the email as text to the specific system folder.  Hope I got this
in the right place?
