Autosave with Microsoft Word

Autosave with Microsoft Word

Autosave with Microsoft Word

(OP)
I am using Office 365 including the use of OneDrive.

When I am editing a Word document and click on File, the menu on the left offers Save and Save As. And if I close the document (X in top right), it will ask me whether I want to Save the document. This happens with most of my documents.

But with one file – say Hismemoir.docx, these options are not offered. Instead, the menu bar just shows Save a copy.

While working on this document, I have tried to investigate. I have gone into File | Options | Save. The ‘Autosave files stored in the cloud by default’ is not ticked. But I suspect that my changes are being saved while I am editing; I would prefer not to have that happening, so that I can abandon the edit if I have made some stupid mistakes.

How can I get this document to work like my other documents, in particular offering me the Save option when I click on File

RE: Autosave with Microsoft Word

A wild guess here - is the name of the file Hismemoir.docm (Macro-Enabled document) by any chance?
With some 'lurking' macros...

RE: Autosave with Microsoft Word

This is exactly the behaviour you would expect if the document is flagged as read-only. This can happen if you download the doc from a website or receive it as an email attachment. You might be able to check this from File / Info / Permissions, or from the file properties within Windows.
