The tip...

Have a file that with a few minor changes could become a whole new document?  Let's say you have Tech Tips #3 and you want to use that as the basis for, say, Tech Tips #4.  You start editing Tech Tips #3 and ooops, you accidentally save it, wiping out Tech Tips #3.  Dang, and there is no way to get #3 back (except your back up files that you studiously make every Saturday morning). 

How to avoid this booboo?  As soon as you open #3 and BEFORE making any changes, go to File/Save As and save #3 as #4.  Now #3 is safe and protected and you can begin editing #4.  Always, always do this when you want to use a file that you intend to keep as the base for another.
