The Basic Versioning feature allows style creators and reviewers to track changes made to the style, as different versions. Each version includes the different resources for that upload. When uploading from VStitcher or Lotta to Stylezone, you can choose to upload a new version or to edit an existing version of the style. When a new version is added to the style, a notification appears to notify users of the new version. For information on how to upload versions using VStitcher or Lotta, refer to Versioning When Sharing Styles Using VStitcher .
For each style with existing versions, you may view a current version or a previous version. Note that the current version is editable, but previous versions are not. To edit a previous version, it must be restored as a current version.
To view a style's versions history:
In Stylezone, go to the desired style. The style review window is displayed.
At the top of the review window, select the display versions button.
The Version History pane appears on the left side of the review window.
