Our editor saves a version of your slice’s notation each time you hit Save. You can quickly access any previously saved version of your slice — either to quickly look at it or to revert your notation back to that version.
This feature is limited to customers in a paid plan.
Viewing version history
To view the version history of your slice, edit the slice and click the Versions icon at upper right.
This will display the versions panel, which looks like this:
You’ll see a record here corresponding to each time you saved your slice. For each version, you’ll see:
- The date/time you saved
- The number of bars in the slice at that moment (sometimes useful for finding a specific version)
Click on any of those versions, and your slice’s notation will immediately be updated to that version’s notation — allowing you to see the slice as of that version.
Careful, though. If you hit save while viewing a previous version, that version of the notation will become the latest version. (Your previous work will likely still be available in the version history if you’d previously saved it.)
Reverting to a previous version
Let’s say you accidentally deleted some notation and saved your slice before realizing your mistake. Here’s how you can revert to the previously saved version:
- Edit the slice and open the version history, as explained above.
- Use the version history sidebar to find the version before you made the mistake.
- Click that version in the sidebar to load the version’s notation into your slice, then hit Save.
If I don’t have a paid plan, is my version history still saved?
Yes. We’ll still store all the versions of your slices. You just won’t be able to access the version history unless you have a paid account.
Does the version history include recordings and syncpoints?
No. The version history is only for your slice’s notation data — not its recordings or syncpoints.
Is version history accessible to anybody who has permission to view my slice?
No. Version history is only accessible to you, the slice owner.
Can I give students access to previous versions of my slice?
No. Version history is intended for your own private use, essentially as a “backup” of your work. This feature isn’t intended to be used in other ways.
Why don’t I see the “Versions” button when editing my slice?
Chances are you’ve just created your slice and haven’t saved it yet. We don’t display the “Versions” button until the first saved version has been created.
