        Totally agree with this. I HATE this feature. It's caused me tons of extra re-work.

        Yes PLEASE! Many times I use an existing document, make changes, then save with a different name. In these cases I NEED BOTH DOCUMENTS. Since this is a new feature, I don't always remember to turn off auto save, which causes me to lose all of the information in the original document. Please let the user decide if we want to turn auto save on, and not have auto save on by default, please!

        This is driving me mad - I like the auto save feature, but I want to decided when I want it, not when I don't want it! Thanks
