Can I stop a user from using File>SaveAs?

I need the user to use my SaveAs button, or save when form is signed.

Although you can't prevent the user from using File>SaveAs, you can always put a popup warning in the preSave event letting them know they should use your button. In the button you can set a variable that tells the preSave code that the user pressed the button as not to show the warning.

No, it's not possible.
