Curious about NewEmptyDoc


In the chapter, it states that the Raiseman app starts with a new empty doc every time, but I thought it was engineered to preserve data between invocations the last time we touched it in chapter 10. So my version comes up with the old full doc every time (:-)). Did I miss something, or is this a candidate for the errata section? (which, by the way: where IS that errata section?)

Perhaps that’s what this defaults business is supposed to control, so this may not be a big deal. But I’m curious about this…


That bit of text was not taking into account Lion’s state restoration, which opens whatever documents were open last time. State restoration also means it makes less sense to add the “Automatically open new document” preference.

You can find the errata for the book in this post.
