I just discovered the versioning feature of LibreOffice, and it sounds amazing. I love the idea of persistent (and trackable) document versions, which is one of the few advantages I see in Google Docs that LO doesn't have.
What I'd like to know is how the auto-versioning option under the Versions dialog box works. The Help page it sends me to when I click on the "Help" button gave me an answer, but when I made changes to my Writer document and closed without saving like it recommends, a new version was not created.
That might be a misunderstanding.
Try as follows:
(1) Create some versions ['Always save a version on closing' enabled].
(2) Now add a new paragraph, save the document manually (button 'Save'), and then close the document.
(3) Open the document, add again a new paragraph, save the document manually (button 'Save'), and then close the document.
(4) Open the document.
(5) Open the last version (File > Version > [select last version] > Open). The last saved version has been before step (2).
Statement in 'Help': "If you save the document manually, do not change the document after saving, and then close, no new version will be created."
To create an additional version: Don't save manually as last step before closing. 'Close', and then 'Save' will always create a new Automatically saved version.
