18 Is there a way to save documents that I assembled in multiple windows without having to name each one?

There is no 'master save' feature, but if you used the 'Document Package' feature, all the documents will have been pre-named and pre-saved in the client's folder you designate for the 'package.' Then it's just a matter of pressing Save and then OK to the…
