10.7: New Lock Documents option in Auto Save Apps
There is a new lock documents option in Time Machine Preferences. Click on the Options… button. Now you can change the auto lock time with different time periods presets between one year to one day.

The possibility to shorten the time to lock the document after editing makes it easier to use a document as a draft for another document without manually locking the document to avoid editing that previous document. For that purpose Auto Lock within hours would be nice.

[crarko adds: Is there a defaults command available for more fine-grained control of this? Post in the comments if you discover one.]

Thank you. I hate this new auto-lock feature - just another nag pop-up that needs to be clicked through to do my work. I find it bizarre that it was buried in the Time Machine preference pane.
