Geek Tip: Was Your Mac Doc Saved Or Not Saved?

Aug 13 2007 - 2:00pm

How great was last week's geek tip [0] that explained how to find your last edit spot in Word [0]? Well here's another document saving tid-bit, which is just as amazing. Next time you are working on a document in a Mac application, you'll be able to know whether your doc has been saved or not.

Not Saved:
Take a close look at the red button used to close a window in the upper left hand corner of your application. When the red button has a dark red dot in the middle of it, it means that your doc has not been saved.



Saved:
Whereas when it is a lighter color and has been saved (either by you or an automatic saving feature), the red dot will be a lighter red with no dot. It's so simple, but so great!

Thanks to the Mac Tip Blog [1] for this very helpful hint.
