I swear I have seen a version control of sorts, maybe back in the old
days of openoffice. You could manually set versions which tend increased
the size of the file quite a bit because new versions were saved on top
of old ones.
I cannot find this feature anymore. Is it gone?
 or sort of version control if you prefer.
The thing I've noticed is that even of the checkbox for "always save new
version" is set it doesn't do, as I supposed, save a new version when you
hit "Save", you actually have to go into the versions box and force it.

If you are really sorry for (unedited?) top posting, then do NOT bullshit us
with 'Client forces it', because no one forces you to post!
The checkbox for "always save new version" is an inclomplete quote, it says:
"Always save new version on closing"
This means that a new version is only created when you close the document,
which is another action than save your document.
