So my issue is that I never use Save after the first time, I always use Save AS. Why? Because there isn't a native Incremental Save. So I never save over a previous save file, I always create another because I've had too many instances of programs crashing while saving.
So yes this is minor but moving Save As to a sub menu has done nothing except make it take longer to save and require more mouse clicks. The dropdown menu doesn't feel less cluttered. Save and Save As are a pairing you'll see in nearly all software.
I take your point. You might want to consider adding a shortcut for Save As in Settings. I use Shift+Ctrl+S which matches Photoshop so is easy to remember alongside Ctrl+S for Save.
