Production revisions are changes to content in production scripts. You can use revisions to identify and print only modified pages in production scripts.

Revisions are tracked using revision styles. Each revision is associated with a unique revision style. The revision style you choose when starting a revision is applied to changed content and pages.


Only authors and co-authors can revision documents.
