Version History Reference

In ClickHelp, you can easily track down the changes made in your topics and roll back to an older topic version using the Version History functionality. To do this, navigate to Properties → Version History .

You will see the list of topic versions available for the current topic. After you choose a version (for this, click a radio button next to it), the toolbar buttons will become active at the top of the page.
