Often times when we are working, we have multiple files open at the same time. Did you know you can use one command to save all of these files at once? Use the SaveAll command to save the drawing in the current window and all other open drawings. This command will save any file open if it has already been saved, or open the SaveAs dialog for any new files that have been created.

ReplaceOpen - ReplaceNew
If you would prefer not to have multiple drawings open at the same time, try using the ReplaceOpen or ReplaceNew commands. The ReplaceOpen and ReplaceNew commands replace the current drawing with a new one. In effect, these commands close the current drawing, and then display a dialog box for opening another drawing. If necessary, you are prompted to save the drawing being closed.
