The only way I have found to view the version history of an AEM Guides DITA object is through the preview pane of the Assets > Files view. Is there a way to view this information from within the XML Editor or even the Map Dashboard?
AEM Guides (UUID) v4.2 On-Prem Installation (late April/early May 2023)
AEM 6.5.15 On-Prem Installation
Yes, thanks, that does allow us to view the Version History, but that option is only available after the topic is checked out and if the topic is not already set to DONE document state.
For topics set to Document State = Done, is the Asset > File preview view the only way to view its version history?
Yes, another way to 'View' only the list of versions that a file has is through the 'Baselines' option under the 'Manage' tab. If you have baselines created for that map, it will list out all the files and their previous versions.
However, to revert to a specific version of the file or view the changes, the web editor and assets UI are the only options available.
