Versions and History

Hi there,

For some reason I am unable to restore to a previous point in my history on a model I am working on.
I have tried to go back and create a version at the point I wanted to go back to, but it wouldn't restore to that point either. In the end I had to create a new branch. I am now in the same position where I can't go back to a previous point in the history. Am I doing something wrong?
My model currently has 6 branches. I am able to go back to a point in history but, at the top of the screen it just says 'RETURN..' which takes me back to the current model state (no option to restore).
If I click the gear or arrow in the history event, there is no option to restore.
Please help.

Many thanks,


Best Answer

    Good to hear!

    It would be helpful for us anyway for you to submit a ticket describing what your experience was so that we can look into what happened.  Sorry for the trouble!

    Hi lana, apologies but I am unable to share the document with you due to contractual obligations. Would you like me to still submit a ticket with a detailed explanation?

    @C_D_R we may never have had the opportunity to find the problem because it "fixed itself" - please create a support ticket and share your doc.
