Chapter 1. Creative Suite 2 Basics > What Is Version Cue?

What Is Version Cue?

Version Cue helps you manage your files efficiently. When you work on larger projects, sometimes you might be working on just a small portion of a large design. If the project is still in its infancy you might have to provide three or four mockups before you get the okay on one of them. The worst feeling is when you open a file and realize that 3 or 4 or 10 hours of work is lost because you overwrote your last few changes unintentionally. Version Cue helps prevent this. It enables version control, so you can track the most recent versions of documents while maintaining access to previous versions. It does this by enabling you to save multiple versions of a document, with notes describing the changes in each one, and by enforcing a check-in/check-out system that ensures that only one person can work on a document at a time.

Despite its benefits, many people avoided using Version Cue in the release of the first Creative Suite because they felt it wasn't worth their time to learn it, or they thought it may have been more of a barrier or hindrance between them and their files. Whatever your reasons for using or not using it, you can bet that many creative teams will make it an integral part of their workflow.
