    Default Designed a new database, how to save it

    Hello, new here. I made a new database, it says "untitled"

    I can see no way to save it.

    I don't even know where a help file is to explain it.

    I clicked on CREATE TABLE

    I named one,
    then inadvertently got a new window and set up 20 fields,
    then went to save it, and can't find a SAVE button.
    If I click the X will it ask me to save, or just lose my work.?

    Where is the beginner help file for alpha5v8.

    OK, by experimentation, I made a new table with design feature, and then clicked on the upper right X to see if it asked me to save ? And it did.
    so i managed to save the one I originally designed.

    But that X could use some work, improvement. If you want newbies to take to this, seems like a "<Save> <Cancel>" choice menu would be good.

    The Save button is in the upper left, on the tool bar. It says Save. Next to it is the Save As button. You could also select File / Save.

    Or if trying to save your work when designing your DB simply use the keys Ctrl + S or use the icon on the left side of the top menu to save.
