and higher members will notice an additional feature in their Edit windows: RSC
or Revision Control System
. The Revision Control System is another unique tool offered by Writing.Com to enable members to track changes made to the main body of text within Static Items. Using the system, an author can view a copy of the document from any time during its edit history.
The RCS Notes section provided within item edit areas allows for a comment describing the changes made to the document's text. This section is found in all three methods for editing your Static Item: Edit
(for Full Screen) , and Q
(for Quick edit). Use of the Notes section is not required, but it will make finding previous versions of your document much easier! The Notes also allow the annotation of changes made by multiple members of a group. Currently this feature is not
available for individual entries within the Book Item.
A list of revisions stored for any Static Item can be accessed by clicking the RCS
link found on both the item's Tools
line in your portfolio and the Your Item
line displayed towards the top of the item when viewing it.
