versioning up / saving procedures

I have been using the save new version option regularly, thinking that this would keep my previous file versions intact. I recently discovered this is not the case - if I make drawing changes, these are shared by all versions within a project.

Do I really have to create a new project each time I want to version up?

Use version saving when the assets will remain the same (i.e. for timing changes/scene planning changes). If you add/delete or fundamentally change elements then it is better to simply copy the project’s folder to work on the copy - leaving the original intact.

Thanks! Yeah, that’s basically what I’ve been doing since… hitting “save as” and using the project name with a v# prefix.
