Vectorworks Updates - File Versioning


When we upgrade Vectorworks, or even run interim service pack updates, it would be extremely useful if the files installed had some sort of version and revision history.


For example, the xml files that contain Pantone colour palettes...  Do these ever change?  If they do how do we know what has changed?


In practice and even using your own Titleblock Manager you (should) allow for a revision history of even the most trivial document and are encouraged to highlight those changes somehow.


In larger offices, and in any managed system where we make use of the workgroup and project folder functionality, we centralise content such as class libraries, file templates, but also colour palettes, and this content often includes resources produced and installed by Vectorworks.  Would be useful if we knew which files need to be updated and a versioning system would be hugely beneficial for larger managed systems.


FYI, the class libraries I am issuing for BS1192/ISO19650 compatibility will include revision history.
