Re-enable old style auto-save for TextEdit (with a real "Save As...").
Authored by: MentalColic on Dec 21, '12 12:09:55PM

Wow, isn't it easier to just hold down the <option> key while in the File menu to activate the built-in "Save-As" instead of Duplicate? All of this editing and copying seems extreme to save a single keystroke.

It is nice that the Option Key can be invoked but I'm so used to selecting three keys to do a Save As. I've made way to many unwanted Duplicates that then have to be deleted and also told, No I don't want you! Adding a forth finger for the keyboard shortcut is not easy, I've been doing Command-Shift-S for something like 25 years.

Please have a look at these instructions for fixing this issue without the use of Terminal.

10.8 behaves more like 10.6, it works, and I'm happy again.
