AUTOCAD MAC 2017 SAVING MULTIPLE COPIES OF SAME FILE

I have already posted on this issue and I've tried resetting AutoCAD settings, however I am still experiencing the same issue. When I click "SAVE" on my CAD file, it will save a copy of that file every time I click "SAVE", as well as saving my original file. So if I am working on a project and I click save 15 times I now have 15 copies of my file. How do I fix this??? It is taking extra space up on my computer and is irritating to have to keep sorting through these files.

Hi,

The only one fix avaliable now is save your drawings in the folder which is not synced with iCloud.

Than we need to wait for Apple when it will resolve this issue.

I am having the same issue. I have a million copies of the same file because AutoCad automatically saves it as a new file each time I hit save.
