Saving my Pages file
How does Pages save the file? Does it do it automatically? How do I get it to save?

I was working yesterday and the [Pages] app crashed on me. I lost an hours worth of work. Which really sucks because I can never get it back. I'm a script supervisor on a reality show and I'm taking notes as the talent speaks. I had to summarized what I remembered they'd said. In fact, it did it twice. Both times, when the file opened, it put into every cell, the same line of text. IN EVERY CELL!

I resolved this by decreasing the number of header lines on each page to 0. When I did this, the file reverts back to the last Save point. I just don't know when it saves!

Anyways im not in the mood to do a lot of writing tonight, but Auto Save/Versions is what your looking for and here is a great article from Apple to help you out :) HTH

Too be honest, I haven't really been doing that. I got it just before Christmas and have only restarted it around 2-3 times. :\ I'll be doing more now!

I am storing them on iCloud and Dropbox as well as on an ext. backup drive I keep everything on.
