The Working Directory you set for your current session.
The directory you last accessed to open, save, save a copy, or back up your file.
2. Accept the default directory or browse to a new directory.
* You can access the working directory by clicking .
3. In the Model Name box, the name of the active model appears. To select a different model click .
4. In the New Name box, type the new file name.
* An error message appears if you type the name of a model currently in session.
5. Click OK to save to the directory displayed in the Look In box or select a sub-directory and then click OK. The Creo Parametric graphics area is displayed.
To save a file to a different disk or directory using the same file name, use File > Backup.
