I have a Google Docs document that I want to share, but I don't want to retain the revision history when I do so. What's the easiest way to go about this?
This is a very good question. Often people in an org can sniff around doc history to see what the author was thinking on earlier revs.
Imagine the scenario:
Note: this is only an issue for someone given edit rights to document.
A way around this (not elegant) is to make a copy of the doc (File --> Make a copy...)
This copy will have the most current content and will start history fresh. Then you can delete the original one, and rename the new one, etc.
