10.5: Take advantage of autosave in TextEdit Apps
Last night I was working on some homework in TextEdit and did not save it before my wife switched to her account. I wasn't worried, I usually do not shut my computer off. She asked if I was done, and shut it down from her side when I said I was. We know one another's password so no problem.

See where the problem arises? I did not save my work. The good news is, when I restarted and logged in today I opened TextEdit resigned to start over again on my work. But it was right there, waiting for me.

The preferences for setting how often it autosaves is under Preferences » Open and Save. Saved my hide thats for sure!

Too bad Pages doesn't use this. It has crashed on me several times, because I search backward, which is illegal to do apparently (a "for Olof only feature" it seems...).

However it doesn't save anything, or remember anything after crashing. Tabula Rasa.

Anyway, did anybody found where is stored the default suffix name for the autosave file created ? I couldn't find anything in your language.lproj's folder of
