What i would try is this. No idea whether it would work.

Include the name of the document as the property  'Title' in the 'Description' 
tab of the properties dialog - File -> Properties. I believe this property 
won't change unless someone deliberately changes it. If this is a problem you 
might be able to find some other way of registering what the document should be 

write a macro that tests whether the name of the current document differs from 
that indicated by the above named "Title" from the properties;

If it's different invoke the saveas option in the macro to "save as" it's 
correct name using the "Title" property and delete the document that the user 

You could then display a dialog to give the user an explanation of 
what's happened. You could also put a time delay in the macro to act as a 

invoke to the "Document is saved as" event.

I'm trying to do something apparently quite simple.
I'd like to disable the "save as" button in toolbar and menu and leave the
"save" action enabled. In other words, I'd like the user to just be able to
"save" and not "save as".

How can I do this?

I tried setting a custom macro so it's associated to the "save as" event.
I'd save the macro in the .odt (not application-wide). All's well except
for the fact that when the user tries to "save as" then the custom macro is
called AND the normal "save as" process is also called. My custom macro
just prints a message on the screen saying something like "Please SAVE,
don't SAVE AS". How can I "block" LO from my macro so it doesn't continue
with the standard "save as" procedure?

I tried deleting the "save as" entries from the Tools->customize sections
but it seems to remove "save as" at the app level, not at the document

Any suggestions greatly appreciated,
