Need Help Saving

I was hoping someone out there could help me with an Icon Developer problem I'm having. I recently took it upon myself to mess around with recoloring some .ICL files. I fiddled with the color settings until I got the desired tone just to my liking and wanted to save it. Here's my problem: I still wanted to keep the original Icon Package and have the new recolored one as well. However, when I went to go save the new one, the only option I was given was "Save", not "Save As..." which would have allowed me to acomplish my goal. So, I tried a couple of different things, such as after exiting out of Icon Developer going into Windows Explorer and "renaming" the new .ICL file and .ICONPACKAGE file to something different after making a copy of the original package.
    Didn't work.
    Not only that but when I loaded up Icon Packager and selected the new recolored package, it showed NO ICONS for it! So I'm wondering how in the world do you actually SAVE a recolored Icon Packager theme without REPLACING the original? I find the documentation for Object Desktop regarding this procedure to be somewhat useless so hopefully somebody here knows the answer. Thanks guys.

Sounds like a bit if a bug. I would check out IconDeveloper 2.0 and see if it can do this job for you sufficiently.

Funny thing. I was just trying to recolor Organic by Skinhit, because I saw it in the new dragon post with different colors.

HG_Eliminator's Dragon Screenshot with Skinhit's Organic link too

I thought there was a way to recolor an entire package but it seems that each individual icon has to be recolored separately.
