Evan, As frustrating as it sounds, unfortunately there is no direct way to accomplish what you need. The best method I've found to do it is by using the "recently opened files" list in K1K. At hte bottom of the file menu (alt+f then y), you can go into a submenu, which contains the five most recently opened files. After saving to another file format such asRTF, you can go into this menu and open the 2nd item on the list. This will be your original file. M$ Word also has this feature. But Word's implementation is slightly different. You don't have to go into a separate submenu. The recently opened files are typically located at the bottom of the file menu. HTH.

I was going to send this to the K1000 list, but my question is more general than that. When in Word, or K1000, and presumably in most other programs, when I save in a nonnative format using the Save As option, the program puts me in that file. For example, when I use Save As in K1000 or Word to save a file in rtf that I am working on in doc or kes, it puts me in the rtf file. Is there any way I can use the Save As feature to make an rtf copy in Word or K1000 - my initial question is mainly regarding K1000 - so I can periodically save an rtf copy while not leaving the doc or kes file I started in? I would really prefer this if I can do it. I especially want to be able to edit a kes file, saving a copy in rtf for Bookshare, while staying in the kes file. If there is a setting for this somewhere, I imagine it would be a Windows setting, since this happens in more than one program. But if not, could someone tell me how to change this in K1000, or Word, or both? Or is this an impossible request, reasonable as it sounds to me? Thanks for any helpful advice.
