When the Save icon is clicked in a Query or a Form, or in the main database window itself, it does not grey out in 220.127.116.11, as I think it does in 18.104.22.168. Greying the icon out is useful for two reasons:
1) Because the un-greyed icon serves as a reminder that there are unsaved changes, and
2) To offer reassurance that the Save icon was in fact clicked and the Save has taken effect.
NOTE: This is similar to bug 96590 which was reported against CALC. Possibly same cause?
Further to the report below, it now appears that the Save does not even work. After I click the Save icon after editing a form, or making a change to the database itself, a dialogue box appears asking if I want to save the document/database to avoid losing the changes. So I have would like to upgrade the Severity of this report from minor to normal or major, but don't have the authority to do so.
It won't be 'greying out' though.
Save works for me on Version: 22.214.171.124.alpha0+

The save-button will be signed by a (green) star since LO 126.96.36.199. If the star appears the content had been changed.
There has been added other save-functions in the context-menue of the button. So it couldn't be greyed out.
For me it isn't a bug any more, because it shows there is something to save and the button has been change for adding more functions in the context-menue.
Have tested this with a form. Saved the form by the button - works. No dialog appears after saving the form and closing it. Green star appears on the save-button of Base-main-window. here I could save the content, too.
All tested with LO 188.8.131.52, OpenSUSE 42.1 64bit rpm Linux.
If saving is still malfunctioning, maybe try this: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile#Resolving_corruption_in_the_user_profile
I guess the original cause for the report is WORKSFORME?
This is a duplicate of bug 96590. Discussions have been made there. It isn't a special Base-bug. So I will set this one (missing greyed out) as a duplicate.
If there appears another bug while saving please report this other bug separately.
