Description of problem:
After select "Always save a version on closing", do some changes to the document
and check the File->Versions, there is none new version is automatically saved.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open/create a text document
2. click File->Versions and check "Always save a version on closing" is selected

4. check the list of Existing versions
None newer version is automatically saved
Openoffice.org should automatically save a new version when close the document
after make some changes
Are you *sure*. It works for me. When I do this I get the usual "you have
unsaved changes, do you want to save them", on trying to close with unsaved
changes, and if you agree to save then it appends a new version to the list of
versions in the versions list.
So, what you mean is only when we close with unsaved changes can this function
will work? And if we save it before closing, the new version will not be added
to that list?
Yes, what is does is "If you have made changes to your document, a new version
will be saved when you close the document", so if you have a document, and use

unsaved changes. The auto-save will only save a new version if there are unsaved
changes when you close i.e. this is
Its this way by design, might be an rather clunky design which needs better text
like "Always save unsaved changes to a new version on closing"

Yes, I agree, moreover openoffice.org should clarify clearly about this in its
Online Help Content.
Agree to close as NOTABUG.
