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.

Edit that popped-up style sheet. 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 menus.
