Lots of people online complain that it's too hard to find the Save As... option in spectacle, including a high-profile reviewer who checked out Plasma 5.12: http://www.ocsmag.com/2018/01/27/plasma-5-12-long-term-sweetness/
"Then, it’s also somewhat clunky setting up the Save As options rather than Save & Exit."
In the medium term, I plan to re-do the bottom button UI to stop using a split button, but in the meantime, I propose we make Save As... the default option for the Save split button. If you want to quit after saving... you can just quit, or change the save type to "Save & Exit"

Make "Save As" the default save mode
Yet more anecdotal evidence from bug triaging suggests that many would prefer "Save As" to be the default save mode in Spectacle. This patch accomplishes that.
I am planning a larger rewrite of the buttons sometime in the coming weeks that should hopefully end squabbles over button settings, but until then, I believe this will be a welcome improvement.
Tested in KDE Neon
- Removed ~/.config/spectaclerc; "Save As" is now the default save mode
- Clicked "Save As" button: correct save operation is performed; button stays in "Save As" mode
- Changed the button to other save modes; same thing
- Quit Spectacle and re-opened when the button was in each save mode; it opened in the correct mode
