Manual

Copy a version

Anshuman Dash

Anshuman Dash Last update: Apr 2, 2019

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 

  1. Navigate to the document in the Viewer
  2. Click the Version History to open all versions of the document
  3. Select the version you want to delete then click the actions menu • > and Create a copy:
  4. Pick a location for your copy starting with the Confluence Space and then the Parent page
  5. 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
  6. 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.

  7. The new copy of the version will then appear in the Overview of whichever space you have selected.
