Disable Autosave and Enable "Save As..."
Authored by: OSXManc on Jun 18, '12 08:50:36AM

DO YOU ACTUALLY NEED TO DO ALL THIS ?

If you click on the header, you get a downward arrow, select Browse All Versions ... and select the previous version you want !

However, not sure if it covers Autosave versions.

Apple has more details in their knowledge base:

Versions will let you revert back to any previous auto-saved version of the file. It's a slightly jarring switch from the old-style "hit cmd-s once in a while" method, but it works OK once you adapt to it. And sometimes it's very useful.

That's quite cool - I'm surprised I hadn't heard about the browse all versions before, maybe they could tell people a bit more!

This has the potential to be hint of the year.

I got it working for TextEdit with no problem, but I cannot get "save as' to reappear for Keynote and Pages, which are the two i really need.

Any hints?

I deleted all the iWork plist files, but to no avail.
