What are Revisions

EditMarks Revisions are periods in time. Each revision has a start and end date / time. The current revision has the end date / time left open. The current revision is the last revision created. When EditMarks is on all inserts and deletes are made in the current revision.

This type of revision is very flexible. You could choose to create a new revision when the document is opened, every day the document is worked on, or even every hour. Or you can create a new revision just because you want one.

When you turn EditMarks on for the first time revision 1 is automatically created. All inserts and deletes will belong to revision 1 until you create a new revision.

Consider the idea of creating a revision every day. If your customer wanted to see all the changes made on a Thursday of a particular week, you would simply select the revision made on that day.
