Wish it can save with menu or ctrl+s directly to original file without file dialog.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.try to save it
have to use save as/save a copy as to save.
allow directly save to original file by ctrl+s/FIle->Save/Toolbar->Save
One use case where this would be very convenient is when the user is annotating a pdf document over a network (smb/cifs/nfs). KDE downloads the document to a temp directory and a program (Okular) opens it. If it is changed, KDE automatically uploads the changed document back to the network folder. If the annotations are saved to a different pdf file, KDE will not upload it back automatically and the user has to do it manually.
Automatically saving changes to annotations (without the user having to press Control+S) directly to the original pdf file would be very convenient too.

Alternatively, https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=228114 or https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=305412 would satisfy my use case (making and seeing annotations on the same document from multiple machines).

It was pointed out to me by Luigi Toscano that there was some discussion of reworking the whole 'saving annotations' logic (see https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=251&t=122750). Looking at the git repository it seems that Fabio D'Urso did some work on implementing the changes in the 'dont-use-docdata-for-annots-and-forms' branch but I don't know what the status of those changes is.
Not knowing all of this and thinking that adding a 'Save' menu item should be a rather trivial change I went ahead and tried implementing it here:

Should we mark this bug/feature solved as per the document here https://docs.kde.org/trunk5/en/kdegraphics/okular/annotations.html
No, because we don't support Ctrl+S yet.
Sorry for the mistake. But I can use Ctrl+s to save the document with annotation as a new pdf file or replace the original one on following environment:
openSUSE Tumbleweed: 20170628
KDE Plasma: 5.10.2
KDE Frameworks: 5.34.0
Okular: Version 1.1.2
PDF Backend: Version 0.6.5
So I thought it's solved.
@CnZhx: Normally, Ctrl+S is the "Save" action. So, the usage of Ctrl+S for "Save as..." (which is Ctrl+Shift+S by default) is a non-standard behavior that can confuse users. This will be fixed.
Thank you, Gregor, for your clarification. It seems I am exactly one of the confused.
Albert, is this close enough that we could consider it a duplicate of https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=315552?
Duplicating a bug against itself is kind of cheating ;)
Haha whoops! Definitely didn't mean to do that. And now I can't remember which bug I was trying to dupe it against, shoot.

No, this bug is about "Ctrl+S" actually working like in a normal program. Which we don't have yet.

Nate, maybe bug 301774?

Yeah, looks like it. Even though that bugs is older, let's consolidate here since this bug is clearer and more technical, and doesn't have so much distracting argument in it.
As far as I understand, the feature requested in this bug is now implemented and this bug can therefore probably closed.
Indeed it is! Fixed in https://cgit.kde.org/okular.git/commit/?id=3957683d7651494a7bc48b26e6b113161e9a888c
