Renaming and moving files from within apps in Mavericks

I have previously written about Mountain Lion’s mini-revolution of renaming and moving files from within apps. Well, Mavericks went further. All you need to do now is to click on the file name at the top of the page and then type a new name and select a new location and even tag the file. If you want to keep a copy of the file with the old name and location just press ⌘⇧S. There is really no excuse left for not having your files properly named, stored and tagged!

    Depending on how you save your drafts of important papers this could indeed be revolutionary!

    This is highly misleading, in that it only works with applications that have incorporated it (i.e. Apple aps). You should have qualified your statement.

      I would put it this way: it does not work on applications that did not take advantage of this technology (e.g. Microsoft Office and Adobe applications). This means for me it works for the majority of apps I am working with on a daily basis, not only including Apple apps (e.g. Preview, Pages, Numbers and Keynote), but also apps of independent developers (e.g. Byword, Pixelmator, OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, MindNote etc.)

    This does not work on my Mavericks install. Is it only for Apple apps such as Pages?
