The History Palette

The History palette (Figure 4.47) is watching every move you make in GoLive, and recording each one. Every change you make in the Layout or HTML Source Editor is recorded, not so much for posterity as to allow you to correct any complex bonehead mistakes that might arise, even if they straddle several steps in your page design process.

Figure 4.47. The History palette keeps a record of the last 20 steps in your development process.


The History palette saves the 20 most recent actions you've taken—they're called states.

To return to a previous state:

1.
After you've done some work on a page, open the History palette by choosing History from the Window menu, or by clicking the History tab in the window it shares with the Markup Tree palette. The History palette shows up to 20 actions, or "states," with the oldest on top.

2.
Click an item in the History palette. The Document window is updated to reflect that page at the state you've clicked on.

3.
Scroll through the History palette to view additional past actions (Figure 4.48). The newer states of the page dim when an older state is selected. However, as long as they are present on the History palette you can return to them. When you perform another action in GoLive, the oldest item on the History palette is removed.

Figure 4.48. This History palette shows the last 6 steps. Use the scroll bar to view more steps. To revert to one, click it and watch the Document window as it is updated.


Tip

You can always use Revert to Saved from the File menu if you need to go back further than the History palette remembers, or if you haven't saved recently. Revert to Saved, as you might imagine, returns you to the last saved version of your document.


Tip

Using the Edit menu's Undo command has the same result as working with the History palette does. The difference is that you can choose the items you want to undo from the palette, out of order. The Undo command forces you to go backwards in order.


Tip

If you switch from the Layout or HTML Source Editor to any other view (Frames Editor, HTML Outline Editor, Layout Preview, or Frame Preview), the History palette is cleared.
