Applied Parameters: None
This command is used to cancel direct editing of the active vault Item, closing the temporary editor, and destroying the temporary file without releasing any changes made since the original editing session was launched.
Direct editing frees you of the shackles of separate version-controlled source data. You can simply edit a supported Item type using a temporary editor loaded with the latest source direct from the vault itself. And once editing is complete, the entity is re-released into a subsequent planned revision of its parent Item, and the temporary editor closed. There are no files on your hard drive, no questioning whether you are working with the correct or latest source, and no having to maintain separate version control software. The Altium Vault handles it all, with the highest integrity, and in a manner that greatly expedites changes to your data.
This command can be accessed by:
- Clicking the button, on the Standard toolbar of the temporary editor (associated with the document currently being edited).
- Right-clicking over the entry for the document - in the Free Documents\<SourceVaultName> folder on the Projects panel - and choosing the Cancel Edit command from the context menu.
- Focusing the entry for the document - in the Free Documents\<SourceVaultName> folder on the Projects panel - then clicking the panel's Project button and choosing the Cancel Edit command from the context menu.
After launching the command, a dialog will appear asking for confirmation to discard all changes and cancel editing of the document. Click Yes to do so. If the document was open as the active document, the temporary editor will be closed. The temporary file (used purely to facilitate the editing) will be deleted, with its entry removed from the Projects panel.
- With the applicable temporary file used for a direct editing session, you do not have to complete the updating process in a single editing session - you can save your work and close the file if you wish. Altium NEXUS understands that this is a special file, so it retains it in the Free Documents folder in the Projects panel, so that you can re-open it when you are ready, and complete the updating and re-releasing process.
