Save a Version

When you save a version of a document, you're saving a snapshot of that page tree of the document and its content at a certain point in time. You can version an entire page tree. For example, you can use versions to:

  • Share public documentation with users while working on additional changes in private

  • Track changes to documents throughout the document lifecycle or archive or freeze a certain state

Content from a dynamic macro, like an Include Page macro, isn’t frozen. Learn how to version a document that contains an Include Page macro.
