Option to Save As and Replace Existing App No Longer Available

It appears that the new Power App menu no longer allows to Save As and replace an existing app. How can I go about doing this? It's a bit essential if we're developing a dev/test version and need to replace it with the production version of the app that's already circulated throughout the company.

 

Old - allows to choose and replace old apps:

New - does not allow to replace old apps:

Can you try clicking the variables menu item? That should hopefully open the old 'file' menu that enables you to select the old 'save as' menu item.

Thanks so much @timl - that was obscure and slipped my mind. Much appreciated for the life saver!

Thank you very much @timl 

This was exactly what I was looking for.

I hope they don't get rid of this. It's one thing to say "just create your app in another environment", however I don't have access to do that. And this is much easier than getting everyone in the business to update their links.

"Obscure" to say the least. Microsoft often does this hide-&-seek game with the options of their apps.
