I am helping a client trial Scroll Versions for their product docs. They have a requirement that they need to make amendments to published versions of documents, and these will have to be merged into the working copy for the next release. They've accepted this last bit might need to be manual.
Currently I am just a bit confused over one bit in the plugin. I have created a few versions, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5. 1.4 is my currently published version. If I go to a page, choose "Currently published" as my working version, and make a change, I do get a warning that a change has been made to an already published page and it also shows up on the Versions Dashboard as a change to a published version. I don't think there's much the plugin can help me with that apart from flagging it so I can manually move it to 1.5. OK.
However, when I select "1.4*" as my working copy, I don't see the change, even though it is the published version. The change only shows when I select "Currently published".
I tried the opposite experiment, by making a change to a "1.4" version, and it does not show up under "Currently published" or on the Version Dashboard as a change to a published version.
So my confusion is, are "Currently published" and "1.4*" the same versions, or are they different? If they are different, why and how? I need to make sure that end users are not going to get confused when they use this.
