Thanks very much, Eb. I already had the "undo after save" option
checked, but I missed the option to do incremental saves. That will be
very useful. I use FileHamster, too, so I hope I will be better
protected next time.
I'll try your solution to the Paste Board problem, too. In fact, I'm
not sure that I use unicode files much if ever, so I might be able to
leave the option you mention unchecked routinely.
