Hi. Hope someone can help with this obscure question.

I'm using BBEdit v 8.5. I'm not a newbie at BBEdit but nor am I an
expert. I've used earlier versions but no longer have them so can't
refer back to see if this strange thing was present then.

Create a new document. Go to save it and...what is this strange thing
at the left-hand end of the "Save As:" field that cannot be removed?

I've searched Help. No luck. I've closely scrutinized the preferences.
Nothing about saving.

I went to the web site to download a PDF of the user manual but there
must be a site bug. Can't display (or download, consequently) the user

Perhaps you should ask the question in <news:comp.sys.mac.apps>.

Rich Siegel who is one of the creators occasionally answers questions

won't help you.

I have BBEdit version 8.6.2 but I can't work out what it is that you are
seeing. If I create a new document and then use "Save As..." all is the
same as with any other program. No mini-icon or pictogram.

It's a bit puzzling.

I wonder if I'm missing out :)

I think BBEdit-Talk would be good for this question.
