It is now possible to save multiple versions of your storyboard without having to save your entire project as a copy.
By selecting File > Save as New Version from the top menu, you can save your project as a different project file, but inside the same project folder.
Each project version will preserve animations, timing, video tracks, audio tracks and clip placements. However, the different versions of a single project share the same drawing files, video files and audio files, as well as the same palette.
Project versions are saved as different .sboard files inside the project directory. To open a specific project version, simply open the corresponding project file.
You can also save different project versions when working with Storyboard Packed Files (.sbpz). If you open a Storyboard Packed File that contains several project versions, you will be prompted to select which version you want to open.
|Project Management view||
The new Project Management view allows you to keep a list of all the projects that were created by splitting your project or by extracting parts of your project.
When you split your project, or when you extract smaller projects from your project, you can check the Link extracted project at the bottom of the Split Storyboard or Extract Storyboard dialog. This will add the smaller projects to the list in the Project Management view.
This list displays the name as well as the full path to each project. It also indicates whether or not the project was modified, or if it can't be found at the location where it was extracted.
This view also allows you to remap linked projects that were moved and to remove linked projects that were deleted, and to link other projects to yours. It also provides a quick access to all the commands that are available in File > Project Management in the top menu.
For more information, see Project Management View and About Linked Projects.
|Merge modified panels||
Using the new Project Management view, you can select a project in the list of linked projects, then click on the Merge Modified Panels from Selected Project button to import all the changes from the child project into your parent project.
The first time you click on this button, you will be prompted to select some merging options. Thereafter, merging changes from a child project will require a single click.
