Save As new file name

I need to create new part by modifying current part. I still need to keep the old part. How can I save as new part name for the part that I have already modified.

    So much ambiguity in the question.
    You can make a copy of a document at any time.
    If you want to have a base part and then perform modifications to create a new part but have the two associative, use Derive.
    If your question was how to revert to an earlier state, then you can use the Version Manager to restore to a previous point in time and do whatever you want (eg export) and restore to the original state (just prior to the first restore). You could also use the Version Manager to create a branch at any point.
    I do not know exactly what you're trying to do so these answers may not describe exactly the steps you need.
    All of these techniques are covered in the Boot Camp training you were offered for free as a Pro user - just re watch the video of your training sessions (these are in Day 1 and Day 2). 

    I hope this helps you.

    The title is explicit for a computer user : Save as new file.
    Translate to OnShape is : Save as a new workspace.
    So click on the hamburger (document menu) and "copy workspace"

    Before answering the user's question the question that needs to be asked is, what relationship will there be (if any) between the new part and current part?

    Depending how that question is answered will define how best to answer the question.
