Hi Lauren,

Technically it is possible to create new versions that do not
introduce any changes. I do not know whether this is by design or not.
It is certainly not necessary to prevent it.

Is your design bug inquiry only about the asymmetry between "Changes"
and "Save", where the former has a special case for "no changes", but
the latter does not have it? Or did you expect something else to be
different or behave differently as well?

Kind regards,
