    Well that's good! But, are the logs of changes public when working with docs in an encrypted volume? I might not have to deal with this now if the apps I use to work on this content don't implement the feature, but once they do they become part of the problem.



    I just need to know if I can disable all versions/resume/incremental save whatever of Lion if it doesn't save such things within the volume that holds the original content. If the versions are stored on the same volume as the document, then great, they will be encrypted in the disk image.



    I'll be definitely looking under the hood to where changelogs are stored and see if there's a file<->volume relationship.

    I will be interested to hear what people think of the versioning feature. I was super-ethusiastic about it to begin with. But now, after 2 weeks of usage, not so much.



    It doesn't have the feel of "Of course, this is how it always should have been," like some solutions have. It just feels overdone. An over-engineered solution to the fairly simple problem of Document Saving.



    I don't know what an elegant solution is, but when someone works it out I think it will look like the difference between garbage collection and ARC.

    Do you really think that endless flicking is the best way to scroll through long documents or web pages?

    Stop. Trolling.



    Yes, you can click and drag scrollbars in Lion.

    Lion marks your ~/Library folder as hidden by default. I made myself a symbolic link to replace the Finder clicking solution we've always had:



    ln -s /Users/username/Library ./Bibliothèque

    Hey pinhead, before calling people trolls, read the smartass post that I was responding to.

    But both sides have merit. And out of context both sides sound like trolling.

    Duplicate

    "The Duplicate feature creates a copy of your document and places it next to the original. So you can start a fresh version using the original as a template."



    Good to know. I would still rather not have either one. One of my frequent tasks involves exporting a pdf from inDesign. Many times I will want to overwrite that file but it won't let me. i have to delete it then export it again. Just an inconvenience that is really unnecessary for my work flow.
