If i open a .ppt file in Powerpoint 2007 and then just close it without modifying anything the file will be saved/modified by powerpoint. (.pptx doesnt seem to be affected)
This is very annoying as versioning systems detects it as a file change and promts for commit or notifies all other colleagues depending on system used. I don't want to notify the whole team that I've just read a document and they surely don't want to get notified about it either thinking it has been updated.
Is there any way to disable this behavior? And what's the rationale behind it in the first place?!
