Is the save selection as command missing in ArchiCAD 16?

I am trying to create an object from the 3D window but cannot seem to find the save selection as command under the File-Libraries and Objects window? This is something I have done many times and find it rather perplexing.

This is with the "Standard Profile 16" Work Environment set.

Thanks Barry. I usually create my own work environmental set which in ArchiCAD 15 includes the save selection as command as a given not something that I have to search for and add!!!. I have changed to the standard one and seen that it is there. Not sure why it disappears when I use my own? See attached screed shot. Will investigate. I am using a mac.

I believe they have changed the command and the old on no longer works.
So if you have the old one in your Work Environment it won't be seen in the menu.
You need to update your old WE with the new command.

The "Save Selection As..." is a menu and the new commands are object, door, window and drawing title.

Thanks for the tipoff Barry. I should point out (since I just made this mistake) that the new commands are actually:

Object...
Door...
Window...
Drawing Title...


Since these look very similar to the commands without the ellipsis. Subtle change in appearance but significantly different effect.
