Save active doc and reopen it

    I want to duplicate the active document to a fixed location and still have the original document open (or reopend).

    How can this be done?

    I got stuck right in the beginning, as I want a InputDialog to rename the duplicate and "documents.GetActiveDocument()" only gives me an ID and my "GetData(c4d.DOCUMENT_NAME)" isn't working.

    After that I can't work out how do save it as a copy or reopen it from the old position.

    Can someone please help me with this?

    You should be able to get the path with a combination of:

    myDoc = GetActiveDocument()
    originalDocPath = myDoc.GetDocumentPath() + "/" + myDoc.GetDocumentName()
    # ^ Might have to append the doc name to it not sure

    And then just do a save document then a load document, something like..

    #LoadDocument() or LoadFile()

    Roughly like that i think..
