Yes but I think the point is I do what to select OK if I change the
sentence, but most users wouldn't consider that an update that the readers
would be looking for.

To paraphrase Shakespeare -- "Methinks he doth protest too much" as I
do not see a problem with the way the Last Edited Date is currently
controlled. If I do not want the Last Edited Date Changed then I
always select [Cancel] when exiting an edit screen. If I want the
Last Edited Date to change then I will select the [OK] button. I
have no objection to a option to add an "are you sure?" prompt,
however, I think it is not needed. Further, TMG has grown to have a
reputation of having a high learning cure precisely because it is so
flexible and has so many options. I think there are many other
options that users have requested that many would desire than this.

Only my opinion -- for what its worth -
