    I want to see a list of applications that support Auto Save and Versions. I Googled and Googled, and I found no list. So let's write one.

    Applications with Auto Save and Versions:
    Automator
    Keynote
    Numbers
    Pages
    Preview
    TextEdit


    Apparently iWork has Auto Save and Versions, but I don't own iWork. Do all the subcomponents of iWork have it? Someone please chime in.

    Preview definitely has Auto Save and Versions, which seems pointless to me because I have never used it to modify a document. I only use Preview to view.

    Do any other applications support Auto Save and Versions?

    I won't include iWork until someone gives me confirmation, iWork is just hearsay at the moment.

    Does that mean Pages, Keynote, and Numbers? Is there anything else in iWork?

    After more Googling, I am beginning to think my list above is exhaustive. Just six applications is a rather meager showing.
