Can zim record changes while user edit

Asked by Nick on 2015-12-12

While I edit texts in Zim, sometimes I make error or forget, what I doing, and so on.
I use bazaar to save versions, but it cannot help me sometimes.
Now Zim can track pages with changes - but it only save it`s names and edit time.

Can Zim save content of pages, that changed by user, - to track this changes?

Answer, please... :)

There is no "track changes" in zim. For short term just undo/redo, for long term there is versioncontrol like bazaar. Probably in your case you just want to commit bazaar more often?

About undo/redo - when I make change on one page and then go to another page - I see undo for first page do not working, is not it?

And I cannot make versions every five minutes... :(

Nick (nick222-yandex) said : #6

But how about making backup files - only for changed pages - when user save it?

Answer, if it is possible :)

Hi Nick,

Afraid I'm not quite sure what you are asking. If the version plugin would save a version automatically after each change, would that help ?

Regards,

Jaap

This is good variant, as I think... :)

May be - save version on exit? Or every hour?

Save version on exit is already available in the current version, have a
look at the plugin preferences.
