In Lion and Pages 4.1, a Command+w (close) saves my file, like it or not. Previously, and in all non-iWork apps on the planet, a Close command asks you if you want to save. I hunted around and did not find any preference to turn this off. Is this now a new default behavior? If there were an earlier version to open, I could live with it and be only moderately annoyed, but otherwise, this is awful.

    If the document has previously been saved then, yes, Pages 4.1 in Lion will auto-save upon closing the document. If you've made changes you don't want to save you can revert to an earlier version & then close it.

    Wow Peggy, add yet another step to the arcane process of saving!


    Now you have to carefully monitor everything you do and make sure you do it all in the right order, ignoring years of muscle memory. …and how it works everywhere else.


    The "consistency" in OSX looks ever more inconsistent.
