I have read several questions (here and elsewhere) that look for applications that can save in a format instead of export in a format. What is the difference between saving in a format, and exporting in a format? Is it just that there is an additional dialog box, or does an exported file in some way behave differently? Is this a style over substance issue?
I have no problem with people wanting things the WAY they want them, I just want to understand if there is a fundamental difference in the function of an exported over the function of a saved file.
Examples: Pages exports in formats that Open Office saves in. Pixelmator exports in formats that PhotoShop saves in (so I've been told).
