Actually, I should correct that (before someone corrects it for me...).

The title bar *will* tell you that the document has been edited, but you could have edited it and opened and closed it one time or a thousand times since the last 'official' save (particularly if you are in the habit of not pressing 'command-s').

Which change was your last preferred one will remain a mystery that you can only solve by scrolling through the miniature thumb nails in the 'star wars' interface, which (unhelpfully enough) do not mark or highlight the changes from one revision to the next. You have to enlarge them and scrutinise each to figure that out for yourself.

Like I said, poorly implemented...
