The Create Revision dialog is used to release a modified item back to the server and create a new revision of the item. The dialog displays information associated with the item revision to be updated. If desired, related component items can be updated at the time of release as well. 


After modifying a model document, click the  button on the Quick Access bar or use the Ctrl+Alt+S hotkeys to release the current document to a new revision in a server and launch this dialog.

In some instances, the dialog will be titled Edit Revision.
