    Version History >> Notes

    When updating a category/header/footer/whatever, why can't I update the version notes? In v9, I was able to make updates to the section, add version notes with details such as changes made/date/whatever so someone coming in behind me would know what took place and why it was important, and also the version notes were easy to see and were saved on update. I thoroughly loved that feature. It also made it so much easier to know what went on and navigate to the version you wanted.

    Am I doing something wrong? If not, I want it back please?

    Thanks,

    Jamie

    Jamie:

    Notes are still there, but hidden until you enable viewing Version History in the little hamburger menu in the bottom right corner of the template textarea. Maybe that is something that could be saved as a preference in the future (e.g. Always show version history).

      I like the version history. I always insert a note when I start working on a client's template; and I often find myself referring to it for other reasons. So here's another vote to make it quicker to access ... maybe even back to the way it was before. It was pretty unobtrusive there. I like a clean layout, but the new admin pages seem to have more white space than necessary IMO.

        Tried that Gordon. After recalling/changing, I clicked on the notes button, inserted a note of my own, and updated. No dice. Kept the standard note, not the one I put in.

          That is exactly it, Kent! It was so quick and easy having it as it was before.

            Notes are added up by the Update button now and act on the changeset (which includes all the changes made in an update). You'd make your changes, go up to Update, but instead of clicking update, click the little dropdown arrow to the right and then click Add Notes & Update. A dialog will appear to add whatever notes you want and when you click save, it updates the page with the notes you entered. Those notes will then be available in the wherever changesets or template versions are visible.

              That helps a lot Ryan! Thank you. I'll give it some play time.

                1. I can't seem to add a note for Category>Header & Footer. Category pages don't have the arrow/drop down next to the Update button.
                2. I'd like to add my voice to the idea of quicker access to version history. I wish it would just show by default like it used to. (Also, instant access to adding a note, like it used to be!)
                3. I have to horizontally scroll to see the Update button and hamburger menus. My screen is 1920 x 1080.

                  It would be nice to be able to turn this on or off within the User settings. I'd like it on all the time.

                    The Add Notes & Update functionality is not available in all locations at this time, though it will be making its way to more screens in future updates.

                    @VisHorizons for your #3, you likely have a text editor that is stretched really wide off screen. I've made a couple of posts with how to disable that... Copied from one of my other responses:

                    "Edit your user and open the Preferences dialog. Using advanced search, set the Preference Name filter to "Like" and set the VALUE to %MMTextEditor.%width then click Search. Delete any matching preferences. Return to the OCST page and see if your editor is normal sized now."
