Copy link to clipboard
Ok perhaps im going crazy but I swear indesign used to save multiple copies of your file.Then you could just click on one that was say 5 hours old etc and go back to that save...Or am I crazy?
SOOOO if so how do you do this now with latest indesign?
yes I know you can hit save as every hour but I would like an automated approach?
Any help appreciated thanks.
There is no way to do that built-in to InDesign. If you were saving to a cloud service like Dropbox, you could roll back to an earlier version of the file.
You can also do that by saving to the Creative Cloud, but the period for saving versions is very short, compared to Dropbox.
Adobe used to include a solution called Version Cue that was part of the old Creative Suite that offered that type of functionality. Perhaps that's what you're recalling? It was discontinued quite a while ago, I think with CS5 or CS6.
You can do that easily via scripting, see for example
It should still work in CC, you just need to put the posted script into the "startup scripts" folder
