New document from original/ save both versions?

An easy question I suspect - how do I do the above?

Use 'Save as' to save the original with a slightly different name, like just putting a single digit on the save-as name.

Just select 'Save as' and give the modified document a new name. That will leave the original as it was while giving you the modified document with the new name.

Method 1: Create a copy before you open document (rightclick and Copy then Paste) open and work on the copy, rename the copy with a slightly different name. Maybe just add a 1 to the end of the filename unless you want to leave it named Copy of xxxx.doc

Method 2: With document open make your changes to document and from File > choose 'Save As...' and give it a slightly different name.
You will then have 2 documents open, the original and the new one you just saved.
When closing original document do not save the changes.

When closing original document do not save the changes.

The "changes" will only affect the new saved as document - and the original document will ignore the changes when closing.

Certainly the case in Word
