On this page we'll provide a quick overview of the commands available from the Save menu in the Content Form.
Saving a content item
If you are creating content that has not yet been saved, then the Save menu will contain a reduced set of options, as shown in the image below.
If you click the main Save button the Save dialog is shown. Give the content a name, choose which folder it should be saved in and optionally add a locale, status and assignee. Click "Ok" to save the content.
Once the content is saved, if there is a visualization defined for the content, then it will be displayed on the right hand side of the content form.
If you make a change the content, then the Save menu will be enabled and contain a number of options, as shown in the image below. Even if the content is up to date and the Save menu itself is not enabled, you can stil save another copy of the content or rename it.
The save menu
Here's a list of the available Save options.
Save and update editions
Save the content. If this content is used in any editions you can choose which editions to update with the latest version of the content. If the content does not require saving and the Save button is not enabled, then this will just be "Update editions".
Tag snapshot to edition
Save and create another
Save and close the content. Create a completely empty form for this content type. In the case of content, for example a carousel, that is the "parent" to "child" content such as the individual carousel slides, "Save and create another" is only available for the child content.
This item is only enabled if the content has changed since last saved and the Save button is enabled.
Save and close
Save the current content, close the window and return to the content library. This item is only enabled if the content has changed since it was last saved and the Save button is enabled.
Create a new version of this content, including the same values for the fields (in this case headline and strapline) and the same assets
Save and publish
Save the content and publish it to the Content Delivery Network (CDN). If the content does not require saving and the Save button is not enabled, then the menu name will be "Publish".
Choose a new name for the content and save it.
