Use the document to learn about saving versions of a document


Adobe will stop the Adobe Story CC service on January 22, 2019. Adobe Story CC, Adobe Story CC (Classic), and Adobe Story CC desktop application will be discontinued. See End of service FAQ for more information.

Versioning a document helps create a history for the document, and monitor changes to a document over time.


In the desktop application, the History feature is not available in the offline mode.

Follow these steps to save a document as a separate version:

  1. Select File > Save As.

  2. In the Save As dialog box, ensure that the Version option is selected. The version number that is assigned is indicated after the Version Number.

  3. In the Description field, enter information about the content that has changed from the previous version. The description provides information to future authors about the history of changes.

  4. Click Save.

Auto-versioning of documents

Adobe® Story automatically assigns versions to documents in the following cases:

  • (Session-based) When you edit and save a document for the first time in a session; close the document, reopen it, and then save it again.

  • (Desktop application) When you update a document in the offline mode, and then switch back to the online mode.

  • (Collaborative mode) When another user gains control of the document for editing.

  • (Overwrite) When you click Make Latest in a previous version of the document. The previous version is now treated as the current version of the document.

Disable auto-versioning (applicable for Flex version only)

When you disable auto-versioning, new versions of documents are created only when you version them using the File > Save As option.

  1. Select File > Document Preferences.

  2. Deselect Enable Auto Versioning.

This preference is a document level setting, and auto-versioning is enabled by default.
