I inadvertently replaced an existing document with an older revision. Is
there any way to recover the revision I replaced? I did not have autosave on.

If you've closed the document, nope. If not, save it with a new name, then
hit undo many times until the point when you opened that file then save it
as the original name.

And remember that you don't actually have to "hit undo many times." You can
pull down the Undo list and select the first (bottom) item to Undo back to
that point.

Hmm, I didn't know that. I just do one undo and then Ctrl+Z a lot. ;-)

Why not Ctrl+Z for the first Undo as well?

If I had to explain half of the things I do the way I do it, I'd give myself
a headache.

This won't help now, but AJC Active Backup http://www.tech-pro.net/active-backup.html
has helped me recover from this kind of situation more times than I
can remember. It backs up documents each time you save them so you can
go back to any previous version.
