Forced upgrade to new Google Docs - all revisions will be lost. Any way to preserve them?
As I've said in too many threads already, the change benefits a few people but leaves the rest of us worse off in every way. Let's hope the Google Docs product team can come up with an eleventh-hour solution for us.
At this point, if they really have decided to do so, I hope they will do it soon.
This because I stopped adding notes on Google Docs (I'm kind of "frozen", waiting their move), because I'm afraid of finding the docs upgraded, without a backup of the old format, and have something changed.
from my side, while waiting for Google move, I'm temporarily using Dropbox and writing some "delta/differential" notes (to be added later by cut&paste to the mainline) as plain .txt file using a regular text editor. This way I have cloud + OS/platform indipendency (being text files) but I lack the simple formatting I need (boldface, etc). Alternatively I could have downloaded all the documents as .odt or .rtf format and edit them on Windows/Linux/etc using OpenOffice/LibreOffice and Dropbox. I'm however afraid that all this import/export could alter something in the docs. I was unable to find a good and light .rtf editor for Linux. The only good ones being OpenOffice/LibreOffice (a bit heavy) and Abiword, but Abiword has some (reported) little bugs with importing highlighted (=different background color) text for now. Still hoping in a fair solution by Google, because ye old classic Google Docs worked well for me :-S
