Not all good things are great, especially if you’re not aware of it. I’ve been caught by AutoSave a couple of times and thought it best to create some awareness around it. AutoSave automatically saves your document after a couple of seconds. This is great, BUT, if your intention is to open the document, make changes to it, then save it as a new document – then listen up. The changes you’ve made, will save over the existing document. Let’s take a look at this and also at the settings for your AutoSave locations. This really is a great feature, but be careful that it doesn’t work against you. If needed, always SAVE AS your documents first, before making changes.
