how to save on multiple drives at once??

I know we're all into 10.4.4. so sorry to be dull, but...

In Microsoft word....is there a way to save the same document simultaneously on multiple drives? In other words, two copies of the
same document without making a copy and dragging it myself??

A script or something?

thanks

You could probably write an AppleScript that would tell MS Word to save the document to whatever place(s) you wanted. Then just use that script (possibly via a keyboard shortcut) instead of the standard menu item.

Or you could attach a "Folder Action" appleScript to whatever folders you normally save to - this AppleScript could copy the file to wherever else you wanted.

I think there have been several articles about "Folder Actions" on the main macosxhints site. And I think there is a tutorial on Apple's AppleScript site.
