Loading different file versions from the iManage UI can be slow and tedious. To help make this easier, once a file is loaded in Draftable, users can use “Select Version” to quickly see a list of file versions in iManage. Users can change the version loaded, or select another version of the same file to use in their comparison.
This article aims to provide how to do this for your iManage documents that have multiple versions.
How to access document version control
First in the New Comparison window, load a document that contains multiple version from iManage. This can be first done by selecting From iManage from the document selection window, and selecting the appropriate document.
Once the document is loaded, you will notice a text underneath the document Select Version. Select this text to control the version of the document needed for compare.
A new window will appear offering two options:
- Change Version: Which will simply change the version of the document used for the compare
- Compare Two Versions: Which allows you to select two documents, to immediately use for a comparison.
In the below example lets simply first change the document version used, from Version 3 to Version 2. Ensure that the Change Version button is selected, click on the Version 2 document, and then click Select.
Now the new document selected is the version 2 document. What if instead we wanted to compare two versions?
Back into the version window, ensure the Compare Two Versions option is selected, then select the two document you wish to compare against each other. Then click Select.
Now both version documents are loaded and ready for compare. All you need to do now is hit Compare to compare these documents.
