Re-enable old style auto-save for TextEdit (with a real "Save As...").
Authored by: ragnu on Dec 18, '12 10:32:48AM

But with TextEdit, you can do a "save as" (in Mountain Lion). If you hold down the option key, "Duplicate" becomes "Save as", and the "save as" dialog has a box you can check if you want the changes to be saved to the original document as well. Leave it unchecked, and you have the old-fashioned "save as" behavior, unless I'm missing something.

Read the hint again. "Duplicate" is not the same as "Save As..."

*Edit* Ah, I see what you're saying, you can actually revert the old document to the last save. But that's still an extra step that I didn't have to before I was forced to use Mountain Lion. Life was so much easier with Snow Leopard.
