How to stop cloud files auto saving on close

Everytime I open a cloud document and close it, illustrator auto saves it on closing.

 

Sometimes, I've opened a file and messed around. I don't want the changes saving, but illustrator keeps doing it and sometimes I lose things I don't want losing. How do I turn off this feature?

Don't use cloud files directly and download them or simply use local files alltogether. AFAIK there is no way to turn off this convenience feature, which of course is how most users would want it to work, anyway.

I like messing around too, therefore I disabled the Preferences > File Handling > Automatically Save Cloud Documents Every xxx minutes. But that does not stop Illustrator from saving when closing the document.

If you like versions and backups of your work and want to keep the control over when it is saved, use the CC files folder:
