Track Changes Dates Reset on Save As in Word 2008

If you regularly use the Save As feature to create new drafts while working in Word 2008, you might notice that with Track Changes enabled, previously time-stamped comments and edits have their times reset to the Save As date and time. Work around this by sticking with your original file, but using Save As (or just File > Duplicate in the Finder) to make backup copies.

To quote from the excellent movie "Spinal Tap," "it's a fine line between clever and stupid." I may have fallen off that fine line in writing TidBITS-114, because despite a few clues and hints, the fact that it was indeed our annual April Fools issue appears to have gone generally unnoticed. Almost everything in that issue was false - though often entirely possible and even intensely desirable - with the exception of the IBM marketing move (which was strange enough to be an April Fools joke), and the Dolch projection panel (which I used to make the last article more believable). Sorry folks, if I threw you for a loop.
