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

How great was last week's geek tip that explained how to find your last edit spot in Word? 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 for this very helpful hint.
