Re: How create new style sheet- Mathematica 8

But suppose it's a style sheet from an application that already exists and
has been edited. How do you get it to save back into the same
application/FrontEnd/StyleSheets location? 

I know there is a Browse option, but it is broken if there are more than two
style sheets in the location. It only shows two and if the edited style
sheet is not one of them you can't save it.

Version 8 destroyed the SaveAs option and this was a disaster.

Now you have to Install, go looking for the style sheet and move it back to
where you really want it.

At this point, press the Install button on the toolbar.  That will save it on 
your stylesheet path where it will automatically be found and populated into the
