  • controlling versions and revisions.

    Hello Every one,

    i m very confused in using version control system.
    how to use it properly, and when ever im doing modifications to my schematic how can it generate automatically revision increment ,
    and how to maintain a description file for the modifications carried from one revision to other.

    robertferanec if you have any video please share with.

    raghu, we do not use Altium schematic / pcb versioning in our company. We only use versioning which is done automatically on our server and which is automatically versioning ALL the files. I have never really needed to use versioning on schematics or PCB. If I need a backup (e.g. if I am planning to do some big changes in schematic or PCB), I just pack the project directory and mark it with the date.
