Automatic saving of versions of current document as in many other Mac OS X apps

Recommended Posts

I'd like to see support for native Mac OS X version control.

 

Many apps automatically save versions of documents as you work on them. At any time, you can browse through document versions and go back to an older version. You can also explicitly save a version.

 
A version is saved automatically every hour, or more frequently when you’re making many changes. A version is also saved when you open, save, duplicate, lock, rename, or revert a document.

Hi matt,

 

This is something we did a lot of thinking about - the majority of our focus-group users preferred the old-school way of being asked when they quit, etc. It's certainly not off the table though - if it's something people might find useful!

 

Thanks,

Yes, Andy I would find it very useful.  I like how with modern OS X apps I can shut my computer down and all the files just close without asking me if I want to save anything and then all the files reopen when I start the computer up again. Having versions would be nice too. Affinity has a great history panel but I believe a file's old versions will still stay around even after closing the file down which would provide additional functionality. I would also like the duplicate, rename, move to, menu options as well as the ability to change the title and tags by clicking on the menu bar.

+1 for this feature request. OS X's Auto Save and Versions are extremely useful for designers, especially those who take advantage of Time Machine to be as flexible as a client's mood swings and changes-of-heart. I hope you re-consider putting this into AD.
