Just as you can create copies of your document, you can also create copies of your versions. When you need to create a new document from the content of a version, copying is the simplest way to do so.
You can copy versions into the same space or to a different space.
Create a Copy
- Navigate to the document in the Viewer
- Click the Version History to open all versions of the document
- Select the version you want to delete then click the actions menu ••• > and Copy:
- Pick a title for the copy or choose to keep the default.
- Pick a location for your copy starting with the Confluence Space and then the Parent page.
When you copy versions into the same space, you'll need to add a prefix, as two pages with the same name can't live in the same space. To help handle these conflicts, you can add a Prefix in the Advanced section.
- By default, this prefix is Copy of which all page titles of the document pages will inherit. When you customize this prefix, you'll see a dynamic preview of the Copy's new title in the dialog.
- The new copy of the version will then appear in the Overview of whichever space you have selected.
