Just take care at the Archive Saves function: you better watch close to know how it works, before you create a big mess in your folder.

This is an invaluable little app and... I wish one thing could be added: I wish that starting up iwork would cause autosave4iwork to start up and then when I quit iwork, autosave4iwork would quit. It would be nice to not always have the menulet running especially those of us without large monitors. Besides this? Fantastic and thank you.

Thank you for the suggestion, however, this project was intended to remain simple, small, and specific to iWork. As of MacOS X 10.5 Leopard, TextEdit includes an autosave feature. It is located under TextEdit's "Open and Save" preferences.

For the additional functionality you mentioned, I may suggest ForeverSave from Tool Force Software. It has features similar to what you request, and is only $15. It has also been featured on mupromo.com, so you might even get it for for cheaper.
