I keep everything in one file. To avoid endless scrolling, I set up a document map with chapter headers, allowing me to skip from one chapter to another with ease. I describe the process in the 'Outline it for me' thread, if you're interested.
My manuscripts are one file, and I have track changes on. When I change a lot and accept/deny those changes, I save the manuscript as a new version--same name but with a 2 as a prefix (and a 3, 4 . . .) I also have a scrap doc for each manuscript; that's where deleted prose that could be used later goes. And if I'm really honing a passage, I'll copy it into its own doc, work on it, then copy/paste it back into place.
You really should check out Helene's addition to that thread. It has totally changed the way I organize my manuscripts. Thanks again, Helene! Here's the link to the Outline it For Me thread. http://www.verlakay.com/boards/index.php?topic=33231.0
