Create a new version of an object

Add and manage content

Author enables you to create multiple versions of an object at any time. View the object's version number on the General tab, in the Properties window.

Note: You cannot create new versions of Style objects.

To create a new version of an object:

  1. Select the object in the Library Explorer.
  2. In the main window, click Manage > Versioning > Create New Version. A message appears, asking you to confirm your action.
  3. Click Yes to create the new version of the object. Author creates an exact duplicate of the original object, with a new version number (each new version has the number incremented by 1). The different versions of an object keep related to each other, as you can see in the Show Relationships window.

    Once you have updated the new version of the object, use Replace object to replace the old version in all relationships.
