How do you keep track of all your version edits to a design? Do you have yours numbered or do you only keep the one version until you are done?

Do you still keep previous versions? Still trying to work out what to do with mine before my collection gets too big

I use auto save in my software and it saves as I digi.......then I test a design and change it right away if it needs tweaking and only save the design that stitches uniformly.......

Usually I save often, overwrite small steps and save finished parts as xxx-st1 etc; e.g. flower as step1, flower plus next bit as xxx-st2.
When I am satisfied I save the definite version and remove the different steps unless I made a major change along the way; in that case I also keep the version prior to that change (rename it as xxx-v1) - I might come back to it later.

Thank you. I must admit one design I forgot to save along the way and there was no going back without having to restart completely! Have learned that lesson

I usually date each edit and put each obsolete edit in a folder marked test/edits... when I am sure that the design is what a I want and have tested it...only then will I delete the trials... learned this the hard way...

Good Idea about the test folder. I will definitely try that one out

I try to number them, but quite often I don't keep them at all.

I am thinking that might be the easiest method too

I only keep one version

I also only keep one format for my machines, as that is all i will ever use. Takes up unnecessary space. Sandra.

If I decide to play with the original design I make another folder within the folder and call it amended works for me
